Out on the mudflat, mulling over mudthings. The tide is about to turn. Hitch up your pants and head for shore.
He's lovely I've never seen a bird like that before. We've got thrushes in the UK but nothing with a colouring like that.
Well done. My fruitless efforts to photograph these birds are causing me to anthropomorphise: to me the bird looks sheepish, as if s/he just realized s/he should have noticed you and flown somewhere backlit.
Hey - hey - got him without a twig in the way. Nicely done. Now you're gonna have to come up with a new goal for 2010! :)
I love Varied Thrushes. They migrate through here each year and it's like a carnival.Cindee
