Back to Posting

It's about time I got back to posting on here! And what better then new birds to clear away some dusty cobwebs?

Late 2014 was not the most bustling of Los Angeles winters, but at such a quiet time of year you can't really have expectations. The biggest "event" was the horde of varied thrushes that have scattered all over southern California. Usually a bird that makes a single appearance each year, the reported total has exceeded 500 in December 2014 alone. 

Apart from being scarce, they are also quite nice to look at. Unfortunately I haven't seen one yet. So instead I will link you to a google image search. They are certainly quite impressive, but the local birdwatchers here are apparently sick of seeing them.
