Richard just called the nature center to say that the Varied Thrush is still visiting his yard south of Hastings.
He asked that I let you all know that his is sincerely grateful for the many LOVELY framed photos, gifts, etc., that he has received.
However he says that the joy of seeing people happy is really all the thanks he needs, please.
He had to get off the phone as another birder had just arrived and being such a great host he wanted to help the person see the bird.
He did mention that he has also had a merlin, common redpolls, and white-winged crossbills in the yard this winter.
