Hi again folks,

Well I managed to sneak up on the thrush and get a few photos this afternoon, 
and after discussion with Jay McG I'm going to change my ID to Hermit Thrush.

A nice bird anyway, and cool to see it feeding on the cedar berries. Hope it 
sticks around a few more days.

Hi Cayugabirders,

On a walk along Long Point Road a couple of weeks ago, I came across numerous 
Eastern Red Cedar branches chopped down by, presumably, the Aurora roads dept 
to clear the roadside and left in place. The branches were loaded with berries 
so I filled the back of my car with as many as I could, and then set them up 
among the now-depleted winterberry shrubs in my backyard.

This afternoon, a Swainson's Thrush, several  House Finches and a couple of 
American Robins are eating them. Hope the thrush sticks around so I can 
photograph it tomorrow.

Marie
