Hermit Thrush takes brisk bath in Glen Park garden

Roberta Guise

At 5:15pm today a Hermit Thrush popped in, splashed around in the bird bath for a long minute, gave itself a good hard shake then flew off.

Reporting a couple of days late: Wednesday at 6:30 Wed AM just as a cloudless dawn was breaking, a Great Horned Owl hooted from the pines up Poppy Lane/behind our house. Jupiter was brilliant, and the even brighter Venus tracked slightly later. What a way to start the day!

Good birding and skygazing!
