Hermit Thrush by Michael Cummings


Available to buy on…

“The Hermit Thrush (Catharus guttatus) is a medium-sized North American thrush. It is not very closely related to the other North American migrant species of Catharus, but rather to the Mexican Russet Nightingale-thrush.

This species is 15–17 cm in length, and has the white-dark-white underwing pattern characteristic of Catharus thrushes. Adults are mainly brown on the upperparts, with reddish tails. The underparts are white with dark spots on the breast and grey or brownish flanks. They have pink legs and a white eye ring. Birds in the east are more olive-brown on the upperparts; western birds are more grey-brown." Wikipedia

    Great shot Michael. I guess he doesn’t get out much is that it? Love the detail in the plumage.

  • It should not be here at this time of year. It missed the migratory boat apparently
