Backyard Hermit

No I do not have Hermit Crabs living in my backyard, what I am talking about is a Hermit Thrush that stopped by on it's way up north to it's breeding grounds in the boreal forest this afternoon. It was wet and dreary but I managed to get an identifiable photo of it before it flew off. This is the first one I've seen in my yard and the first one of the year for me. I don't see them often during migration so this was a treat (and so was that twix bar I just ate). It is just another sign that spring is here at last.
