Hermit thrush

Catharus guttatus

Description:

You must check out their song!!! It is the essence of summer and the beauty of wild woods. http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Hermi...

Notes:

They return to our land during the last week of May every year and are the theme music that shapes the feel of summer. We have a couple of large elderberry bushes in our yard and they fill up on the berries before migrating to their winter grounds
