Varied Thrush rush

December 20, 2006

I drove out to Crow Valley campground today, having heard about a Varied Thrush that has been seen there the past couple days. Things are pretty quiet at the campground – the gate is shut, and I was the only human there. In spite of that (or perhaps because of it?) I was able to find the bird hanging out with some thrush pals (robins and solitaires) near the picnic area in just a few minutes. Here are a few views of it.

Varied Thrush is pretty rare in Colorado, and this was my first one here. It’s one of favorite birds though – very handsome, like a Robin that got tired of its plain look and decided to sport a necktie or a vest.
