Another winter bird (an especially handsome one).

Unlike wanderers like redpolls, the Varied Thrush is a reliable find when it snows.  They come down to the lowlands and skulk around in parks and gardens.  When flushed, they fly up about 10-15 feet, and then nervously glance at you over their shoulders.   You quietly approach, hoping to get a twig-free shot...

whoops, he's gone.
