We are getting heavy snow today, and I made the birds a cleared area to feed... even making a covered food and water station for them.
This fella showed up almost immediately!
We live in a third floor apartment and feed the birds from our balcony.
Central Virginia area...
He/she has small tufts of feathers just above the nares.

Thank you!
Karen

Hermit Thrush.

Potentially tricky to distinguish from some other thrushes (Gray-cheeked, Swainson's, and Bicknell's Thrushes), but easy in March, as the confusion species are still in South America for the next month or two.

Wow!
Not one I would expect 40 feet off the ground!
But I guess the desperate times (snow) bring desperate measures!

Thank you Resin!

Yep, exactly! It will have been able to see other birds heading there, and gone to investigate.
