Hermit Thrush - Antioch yard - 10/9

Paul Schorr

Late this afternoon a FOS Hermit Thrush showed up at our bird bath. In addition, a “sooty” Fox Sparrow and a Lincoln’s Sparrow continue with the flock of White-cornwned and Golden-crowned Sparrows. American Goldfinches have begun to return and are joining the Lessers at the feeders, and several Yellow-rumped Warblers have also showed up. Surprisingly today, a Cooper’s Hawk chased a bird into our patio, missed its prey, but then took up its stance on the table. And how about those blue skies today!

Happy birding, stay well and be safe.
