No bird wears the hues of orange and black quite as well as the Varied Thrush.

This is another angle of a lovely male who was temporarily stunned when he flew into one of the sunroom windows (not sure why — there is coloured tape and a mesh screen on it), and decided to roost for a few minutes in the cherry tree before flying off.

We are lucky to see these shy, secretive birds once every few weeks–and they are usually hanging around the fences.

A Varied Thrush

Oh I have been lucky to see a Varied Thrush only 2x so far. Once in Kirkland, WA, years ago, in backyard up in the branches of an old maple. And 1x when we first moved to Aberdeen, WA, Grays Harbor County, a year ago. Both were in the fall to winter. The one here landed on our back railing of our back deck, close to the trees. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photo! I love this bird. Secretive is true!
