Yard Critter of the Week

Wood Thrush.

More often heard than seen, the Wood Thrush's lovely call, ee-o-lay, echoes in our woods this time of year. We have at least three, and likely more, singing around our place. Each letting the others know it is here, and claiming its patch of woods.

And, of course, alerting the ladies to his presence as well.


This particular bird wandered out from the woods in our side yard. Alas, I had the wrong lens on the camera, too short a focal length to really get good shots.

So you'll just have to settle for these.


Complicating matters, the sun was playing hide and seek with the clouds. So the lighting was changing with each shot. And then the bird headed off, back into the woods.

Bye-bye.
