Letter to the Editor

To the editor:

I wanted to share my experience with Varied Thrush since I didn’t know the bird either until it was in my garden a few years ago. I live in the woods of cedar trees, hemlock, dogwood, rhododendrons southwest of SeaTac Airport. It had snowed some years ago and was melting off after several days of snow on the ground. And there on the ground picking up whatever black bits that had fallen on the melting snow under the trees was a varied thrush. I understood it lived in the mountains generally, but came down during the winter sometimes. Ever since, of course I know and recognize this lovely bird.

Merry Ann
