Winged Wednesday III
This morning in the rain sang a mimic, repeating phrases once or twice then moving on. The bird was by the pumpkin patch — or maybe in the stand of lilacs. I was on my routine approach to the big house.
I had to take a couple of steps toward the sound to enjoy it — and to be sure I wasn't hearing a mockingbird. No: Thrasher. First of the spring.
That's this Winged Wednesday. Next one starts at the Forest Learning Shelter at 9:30 on the 10th. Rain or shine.
