PIC OF THE WEEK: 09/04/17 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2017 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Richmond, VA
Notes: This is the second time only visit from this Swainson’s Thrush the the Bird Spa and the first ever as a fall migrant. The other time was mid May in the spring of 2014, so it has been a while. This species breeds throughout Canada in the summer months and migrates through the continuous United States twice each year. They winter in Central Mexico and southward far into South America. As a dweller of the forest understory, they mostly eat insects during the breeding season. But while on migration, they also eat fruits and berries that are plentiful at that time of year. They are in the same family as out other thrushes, which includes both the Bluebird and the Robin. It is always a treat to have such an uncommon visitor to the backyard birdbath.

THE BIRD SPA

The Birdbath Alternative • DIY Installation Instructions and Parts List

Birds, like all other animals, prefer habitats that meet all their basic survival needs: food, shelter and WATER! They depend on water to condition their feathers for flight, to help maintain their body temperature, for hydration, and for hygiene. A landscape with a consistent, clean running water source will attract both a greater number of species and a higher count of birds. This especially applies to the many migratory and insect-eating species too. The Bird Spa is a low maintenance water feature, designed specifically for birds. Has ATTRACTED 80 DIFFERENT SPECIES at a single location in central Virginia!
