Hermit Thrush

We happened upon this guy late last fall. We were hiking in Whitewater Memorial State Park, along Lakeside Trail, and wishing warblers were in season. I can’t tell you what caught Jeff’s eye, but he stopped suddenly, and this is what we found. This was great timing, as we are in their migration route.

Hermit thrushes sometimes forage using a “quivering” method – they use their feet to shake grasses, dislodging the insects they like to eat!
