I've never seen more than two Varied Thrushes at the same time in our yard here in Burien, but yesterday there were five! The were very busy eating 'berries' from our Strawberry Tree. Also our "Christmas" Hermit Thrush showed up, also chowing down on the berries. For the past few years we see one or two Hermit Thrushes around this time.

Nothing exceptional, but always a treat to see these members of the Turdidae family.
