One of the Swainson’s Thrushes was still hanging around two days after I first spotted them. My friend Dave stopped by, and I took him to the window to see it. We were looking at it the backyard when I noticed this Veery. It was standing in the bird bath at the time. It then began foraging on the ground under the nearby bushes.
