A Welcome Appearance of Thrush
Unless you are a bird watcher, you generally do not welcome the appearance of thrush. Thrush is a common description for the affliction known as yeast infection. For birders, the appearance of thrush refers to the arrival of American robins and Eastern bluebirds. Even though it was cold and windy today, I paddled some on the Wapsie River in Frederika. It wasn’t until I was across the river that the thrush appeared. I have no idea how many bluebirds and robins there were, but there were many. Joining the robins and bluebirds were a few Cedar waxwings. All were eating on what few berries remained from last year, except for the waxwing in the first photo. That bird was downing a clump of snow, unless there was a berry inside the snow. I am going to share images, with hesitation. This morning’s light was less than ideal.
