|A beautiful Veery (Catharus fuscescens) gives me the eye. It might be the stink eye, but I don't think so. |
He's too sweet for that! :-)
|I was so happy to see this bird. I don't get to see it that often in the woods around my house. During spring migration, I do get to hear his beautiful song every now and then in the evening along the Little Miami River, but it's rare.|
|...such a magical-sounding little bird. If you really want to get fanciful, it's not too hard to imagine his song being a fairy call to announce the beginnings of "midnight revels, by a forest side..." (John Milton, Paradise Lost)|
