hermit thrush

My friend had taught me the call of the hermit thrush because you way more often hear a hermit thrush than see one.
And so, I was watching black vultures when I heard, looked and then saw this lovely bird.

oh, drat

The red-shouldered hawk’s face says it all: oh, drat, those pesky crows have found me.
Within seconds there were 5 more crows loudly telling the neighborhood they had found an intruder.
