Fat Hermit Thrush

I took the new puppy out to the front yard this morning. It's cold here now (in the teens at night...yes, north Florida has winter sometimes!). I saw this hermit thrush perched on a low branch. Didn't have my camera with me at the time. When the puppy was ready to come in, I got the camera and went back out without her. Amazingly, the bird was still there.

A beautiful image. Sure the bird wasn't frozen stiff?

Amazing shot, Peggy! I wonder if this is the (type) of bird that I kept hearing in Nova Scotia last summer. I narrowed it down to a Thrush, but they are hard (for me) to distinguish between. The sound I heard was eerie and beautiful. I just love this photo!
