A male Varied Thrush has appeared today 1/12/13 in my backyard in Moorhead, MN first seen this morning at 10:45 – I have observed it 3 times now (as of 12:30 p.m.) – it feeds on the ground around our feeders and crab apple tree and flies to our neighbors spruce trees for protection from the cold --  this is definitely a first yard bird for me
