Wood Thrush in the mist

Wood Thrush

A misty morning at Point Pelee produced this cooperative Wood Thrush. One of the finest singers, it does lovely flute like variations with an introduction and a counterpoint.

It breeds in the deep forest of eastern North America and it’s numbers are in decline due to loss of habitant, and parasitism by Brown-headed Cowbird.

  2. Just wonderful photos. The last photo in particular induced a smile on my face. I’ve seen these birds in the first week of May at Pelee, but rarely see them outside of that window. I hear them at Ojibway on the rare occasion. Sadly, my first view of this bird was one that had a fatal collision with my parent’s window. Great series.

  5. Lovely photo, the second is my fave, has a slight feeling of melancholy, seems to match their song!
