Bird on a Wire

This is a wood thrush sitting on a wire.   We hear these a lot, but rarely see them.   Mostly they stay in the woods all summer long where we hear them fluting - eeee oh Lay! throughout the season.  

They are one of my very favorite songbirds.    They make the woods sound like an orchestra tuning up on June mornings. 

Lily saw this one just after sun-up and snapped the pic one foggy morning last month.  


  1. I know what you mean! They make the most magical song that echoes through the woods. None of the other thrush family members even come close in the beauty of their vocalizations.
