I have seen these little birds before. They look very much like robins, but they are smaller, speckled on the breast, and have a white eye ring. I have come to learn that this particular thrush is a Hermit Thrush. You can learn more about it here and listen to its song and learn of its habits. These particular thrushes don't seem all that afraid of me. I hope they stay and nest here.
The goldfinches have finally changed into their yellow tuxedos just in time to blend in with all the dandelions that have popped up. I'm receiving handfuls of dandelion bouquets from Toodles lately. She is really into picking flowers -- both dandelions and my tulips, daffodils and hyacinths. Ah well, she is so thrilled and proud to hand a flower bouquet to me, that it melts my heart.
The moon is full tonight! I hope you look for it!
