Bird species #111 on my life list falls under the endearing label of “little brown job.” Fortunately, I have brushed up on my knowledge of North American birds, so the Hermit Thrush, a medley of streaky brown hues, wasn’t a mystery for me.
you’re not like any other little brown job I’ve ever seen before!

This chunky bird was spotted traipsing rather tentatively through the fir needle laden area of my backyard, near the secondary shed, and then later, cautiously around the blueberry bush that had become, for many Black-Capped Chickadees, White-Crowned Sparrows, and a family of three American Robins, a source of fresh food this summer. This long-distance shot was taken on September 3 from the second floor sunroom.
