Love, love love this! The quiet colored bird and the deeply colored berries.
So very pretty.
I have seen a Swainson's Thrush just a couple of times and never had the opportunity to photograph one. The bird is a member of the thrush family, like the American Robin, and is slightly smaller than the robin.
A friend of mine had a Swainson's Thrush strike her window, and she took a couple of photos. She assisted the bird and it eventually recovered and flew away.
We can admire some hummingbirds.
I had a couple of female Anna's hanging out.
They are a bit less war-like than the males.
