Des Plaines, Illinois — home

One of the Swainson’s Thrushes was still hanging around two days after I first spotted them.  My friend Dave stopped by, and I took him to the window to see it.  We were looking at it the backyard when I noticed this Veery.  It was standing in the bird bath at the time.  It then began foraging on the ground under the nearby bushes.
