Went looking for bluebirds and warblers...

...settled for a Hermit Thrush
I visited Cold Creek Conservation Area on Easter Monday, looking for  early bluebirds and warblers, but did not find any. I did however find a pair of Hermit Thrushes, one of which is pictured above.   I was quite pleased because I had not seen a 'Hermit' for a few years.   They're not always easy to find, but this one posed long enough for me to take a photo.   Because it was facing away from me, my picture does not show its spotted breast.   Many Hermit Thrushes winter in the northern United States, which means they can arrive quite early during the spring in southern Ontario.
