Varied Thrush – year round resident

varied thrushPeter, a prdn reader, suggested the Varied Thrush is another bird that could be confused with the American Robin.

The Varied Thrush is a shy bird that is quite common in the moist coniferous forests of western Canada.  Because it prefers old-growth forests its population decreased in the 1970s and 80s due to logging activity. Numbers have stayed consistent since then.

According to Peter,  “the Varied Thrush is a year-round resident of the Powell River area and is quite happy to gorge itself at our bird feeders.”
