A Varied Thrush. Actually there were 3 of them flipping leaves over, looking for snacks. They seemed to be having some success. I have never seen them before, and had to look up their identity on this great bird ID site.
A Northern Flicker flew into the yard amongst the Thrushes, causing them to scatter away. The Flicker then flew into the tree, leaving the Thrushes to continue flipping leaves over.
I was happy to see the Flicker because it's the second time I've seen them so close to the house. I hope it means they will return more.
Who's this little guy? He's pretty cute.
Prima disagrees. She pressed her head against the glass, keeping a close eye on the intruder.
