'My' Robin is a Veery!

A friend researched the particulars I gave her about the nest I found…containing 4 eggs, where it was located (on the ground in tall grass/weeds), the color of the bird I saw in a fleeting moment (rust) and her size in general….smaller than a robin.

The bird sitting on those eggs is a Veery also known as a Spotted Thrush.

I’m so happy to know.



All the same, it lays “veery” beautiful eggs! :D

Have you heard the song yet? Thrushes here have a veery (sorry) lovely song.
