This morning there was a Hermit Thrush at Sherwood Platform, hanging out with two Song Sparrows and some Juncos and Chickadees. It grabbed a few berries from the short tree over the corner of the platform (basically right above me) before flying off. I assume it's a hermit thrush from seasonal expectations, though it seemed reddish overall on the back and very lightly spotted in front, a la Veery.
Also heard in that general area (towards Charlie Harper's corner) were Eastern Bluebird and Brown Creeper. Earlier a mink bounded about from the feeder towards the stone bridge.
