Hermit Thrush eating Sumac seeds at Lake Park in Milwaukee Wisconsin on April 13, 2017
While birding Lake Park in Milwaukee I came across a couple of Hermit Thrushes eating Sumac seeds off a tree. I photographed the same species eating seeds at the exact location a couple of years ago, interesting. It was a gloomy day with a cold breeze off the lake. Images were taken on April 13, 2017.

May I just run around with you and see what you see?!?!?! As always… loving your work.
What a different view. I only see them skulking around fallen logs and underbrush and not against the sky.
Having a good meal after the long flight north? Great photos!
