Bird of the Month, March 2020 - Hermit Thrush

Come catch a glimpse of this little one before it leaves to its’ breeding grounds up North as far as Alaska. Hermit Thrush is one of the hardier thrushes and is only seen in Debs Park during the winter season. Hermit Thrushes do most of their foraging on the ground, picking up insects from leaf-litter or soil. These little ones are omnivores, mainly feeding on insects or berries. They can be difficult to see and are often heard instead. Their song is a series of clear, musical phrases very flute-like. For those that do catch a glimpse of them, their speckled breast is always a treat to see.
