Backyard beauty.

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.

Leavesnbloom, They are wholly unique, and an icon of the north Pacific coast.

Fiona, Yes, it was a gotcha! moment. (It's a he, btw--the females are paler.)

Ken, Ha,yes. I'll have to come up with something.
