This week I am featuring the Varied Thrush Ixoreus naevius. Being relatively new to bird watching (a year and a half), I am thrilled to be able to add the Varied Thrush to my small, but growing list of bird sightings. This one, I believe, is the male.
- grayish-blue nape and back
- beautiful orange eyebrow and wing bars
- underparts orange with black breast band
On Friday, he was again by the bird feeders and moving in and out of the trees. Perhaps I will be able to get some better photos in the next few days. I have not seen a female or any other males.
