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.

    What a different view. I only see them skulking around fallen logs and underbrush and not against the sky.
