Varied Thrush

Varied Thrush
The varied thrush is a robin sized bird that breeds in western Alaska, Canada, and the northwestern United States. On their breeding territory they typically forage for insects on the forest floor. During the winter birds that nest in Alaska and Canada migrate south down along the Pacific Coast primarily to California. During the fall and winter they forage in loose flocks eating berries, fruit, acorns and nuts. Once in a while one of these birds gets mixed up during migration and ends up here in Minnesota. This bird spent a winter in Roseville, MN where it mixed in with a small flock of robins. It was very popular with the birders here in Minnesota.

Such a lovely bird. I wonder how far south they come. I have only ever seen a regular robin about twice since we have lived here.
