Not four days ago, I went on abirding trip on our property, trying to get a photo of a blue jay. But I decided to travel I route I had never taken before... I blazed a new path. I went over a bridge, up a hill, across the top, down the same hill, and up to the creek. There seemed to be quite a bit of activity. There were about 30 American robins (which is uncommon this time of year), some carolina chickadees, a nuthatch or two, and a catbird. I also wasa surprised to see a warbler species hopping aout high in the tree tops. I wasn't able to see it good enough to identify it, though. I also saw what I assumed was a robin, but once zoomed in to 30X, I saw that it was not a robin, but my first ever wood thrush! It looked alot like a robin in shape and size, because robins are in the thrush family. Though I have heard many wood thrushes, I have never seen one because of their habit to skulk deep in the woods on the ground under thick tangles of vegitation. However, I was lucky to get a mediocre photo, which I will not post here due to the large file size. I will, though, post a link to the wood thrush ID on Cornell Lab's AllAboutBirds.org website, where you can view cool facts, a picture, song recording, and nesting, feeding, and other information about the wood thrush.
Wood thrushes are actually the owner of the all-time favorite bird song. I will post a recording of their song from Xeno-Canto.org below:
