Five years ago this week (2)
In the winter of 2011, the best bird in Central Park was a Varied Thrush that was hanging around near the Ramble bathrooms. Varied Thrushes are common park birds in the Pacific Northwest; we get a vagrant here every few years.
This one had been often seen in January and February in the company of two male Eastern Towhees, where were the most accommodating Towhees I've ever seen.
The day I got the Varied Thrush photo above I also took one of my favorite Blue Jay pictures ever.
