Song Thrush by jamibann

Song Thrush

The other evening, a song thrush was singing at the top of its voice at the top of the tallest tree in our garden. I tried really hard to get a photo of him, but against the evening light and at such a height, it was a dismal failure. However, I was to be rewarded a few days ago when I heard and saw this fellow whilst out on a walk ... and he sat still for me.

Stop Press : For the first time since mid-March, I used my debit card yesterday in a shop NOT in our small village! We went to our local garden centre (20 miles away) to buy some new plants for the garden. I'm still not clear if we're allowed to go beyond 5 miles for this, or not, but we did, and kept our distance from everyone around. Given where we live in the country, if we don't go beyond 5 miles, we don't get anywhere.
Fantastic photo...I zoomed in on it and so clear!
Now can we use 'Zoomed in' about photos.......
after the latest technology has taken over the world?😄😄😄

Great to have garden centres to go to.....and so many people in 'beyond 5 miles' must have equity in accessing these. We're really fortunate as we have 2 within 5 miles from us. Enjoy!

Splendid foliage backdrop whilst he sings for you. I imagine this made your day! It certainly would have done for me.

Wow, that is quite a large thrush! Beautifully posing for you. Nothing nicer than hearing birds early morning or early evening, eh?

PS what a step forward! I am having a friend come for coffee in the garden today. I have set up the little camping coffee table and chairs with over 2 metres between us. I actually feel nervous. It's the first time to have a person on our property socially in 3 months!

Well spotted he blends in so well. I haven't travelled more than 8 km from home in almost 3 months but now restrictions are being lifted here I am hoping to travel further but still very wary. We did have two friends here for dinner last night though and it was lovely to feel almost normal again

Lovely capture

Great shot! Here's the some of the craziness that is going on here- the garden center is not allowed to be open but the Farmer's Market is. So is Home Depot and Lowes. All sell garden flowers. Why is the poor local guy being punished?? He's got just as much out door space as the others do! Glad you enjoyed your excursion and got this lovely songster on "film" for good measure!

Song thrush.....a beautiful bird, even the name is lovely. That spotty chest is so identifiable.
Oh I’m sure you’re fine traveling 20 miles, in your car for a start & if our politicians can travel for miles I’m sure you can too! We haven’t been that far but then we don’t need to....it’s quite exciting actually doing proper shopping!

Nice capture. It would be easy to miss in the trees like this.
Glad you could get out and get some plants.
