If you have purchased Steve's birds in the past, you already know that each bird is a little unique and wonderful. It is the slight variation in the feathers or beak that makes each bird a work of art. Know that every bird is made with great care and craftsmanship, and the variation is what gives them life.
The Hermit Thrush
"A more hardy bird than the other brown-backed thrushes, the Hermit migrates north earlier in spring and lingers later in fall than the others; it is the only one likely to be seen in winter in North America. If startled from the ground in the forest interior it often perches low and stares at the observer, flicking its wings nervously and slowly raising and lowering its tail. In summer, its clear, pensive song is heard in forests of the mountains and the north." Audubon Society
