Varied Thrush

Ixoreus naevius - We first observed this beauty in January 2002. Rooting around in the big circle among the bark mulch for bugs, he happily spent thirty minutes there for our viewing pleasure. Common in coniferous woods in the Northwest. Similar to the Robin, song is an un-robin-like series of long musical notes on different pitches, each note loudest in the middle. Call is a descending whistled hum.
