For the past few weeks I’ve been haunted by the call of the Varied Thrush (not really, but it’s so much more dramatic than just being curious.) We’ve all heard it before but maybe we couldn’t identify the sound. It’s that long, singular note that sounds similar to a steam whistle. So often I’ll hear the steam whistle sound but I’m unable to locate the bird…they’re so haunting.
I understand my picture above doesn’t give you a good look at the Varied Thrush, so here’s a link to get a closer look and to even hear a sample of their sing song.
