In keeping with my self-described designation as the world’s laziest birder, I spotted a little bird outside the window when I was visiting my sister. I said, “Hey, what’s that there.” My sister said, “It’s just one of those annoying house sparrows.” I said, “No, to the right, under the azalea.” I went and got my camera. As I came back, the little brown bird hopped out onto the patio and into the sunlight.A hermit thrush on a concrete patio.

I have tentatively identified it as a Hermit Thrush. There are a few very similar thrushes, so if a more knowledgeable person has a better id, let me know. We saw him scratching at the ground under some bushes that border the patio. He’s a little bit bigger than the House Sparrows.

Sorry, to the non-birders out there for the incredibly unexciting picture taken through a window. For the rest of you, here’s a fun macro shot I took on Saturday.
