Awesome Thrush

Published by at 5:30 am under Beyond Bounds

Though he looks like a fancy robin this is actually a varied thrush, a bird that breeds from Alaska to Northern California.

Most varied thrushes spend the winter south of their breeding grounds but a few individuals fly east and end up as far away as Maine and Newfoundland.

This one caused a sensation when he was found in Avon Lake, Ohio in early December.

Thanks to Shawn Collins for making the trip on December 9 and posting his photographs for all to enjoy.
