Hermit Thrush Drops by my Regina Backyard

A Hermit Thrush has decided to visit my backyard in Regina, Saskatchewan. What first caught my eye was its bright reddish tail, and then the dots all over its breast.

This shy bird is apparently not usually seen in backyards — they prefer northern forests — but this Thrush has stopped off to forage in the small pile of winter-clean-up brush by the fence. (I wish it would come closer to the house for a better picture!)

I haven't heard it singing yet, but I found its song on All About Birds, so I'm listening for it now. 

If it stays a little longer...

What is this? Hermit Thrush.
