A Varied Thrush appeared yesterday afternoon, in the Garden Hose Pond as if consolation for the missing Wood Thrush. Cousin's, both Thrush species  seem to find food and comfort in the shady  back yard  garden and the water drippers around the pond. I have sighted Varied Thrush around Shoshone Village 2 other times during October, and it's possible that this is the same individual. Varied Thrush have lovely pluage and they are rare in the desert even in the winter. They Breed from extreme Northern California to Northern Alaska, and normally winter in Western California.
