While hiking a trail in the Reelfoot Wildlife Refuge, this Hermit Thrush caught my attention when it landed on the branch of a nearby tree. A winter visitor to our state, it spends a lot of its time foraging for insects under fallen leaves or searching for wild berries among the forest’s undergrowth.

Another well done blog including one of my favorite birds!
This is the first time that I’ve gotten a photo of this bird. I wish that I could see it more often.
That’s a beautiful Thrush.
It really is. It was a nice surprise on an afternoon walk. 🙂
That’s the first time I’ve seen one of those birds Rebecca; just heard the name before. I like that spotted chest, almost like a juvenile.
It was a first for me also. I had to look this one up to see what it was. It’s always fun to see a new bird.
Yes it is.
great first shots Rebecca!
