I’m like, 90% certain that the little round bird I just watched foraging under the bushes in my front yard was a hermit thrush...


The cornell bird app wants to suggest it might have been a swainson’s thrush, but it was really acting like a hermit and it didn’t seem to have any of the face striping I’d expect from swainson’s (though I think I’ve seen those here in past years too. Plus veerys, brown thrashers, and wood thrushes… all the spotty-chested brown birds)
