Hermit Thrush, take 2

As mentioned yesterday, my first photographic encounter with Hermit Thrushes took place at the University of British Columbia’s Point Grey campus in late October 2014. As the photo above demonstrates, I was to get a much closer look just a week later, in a wooded area sandwiched between the Nitobe Memorial Garden (a beautiful Japanese garden) and the Liu Institute for Global Issues.

The photo below shows elements of what attracted them: Mushrooms! Now this may seem odd for a bird that is an insectivore, but they clearly were very attracted to them and I was quite happy about that.
