Varied Thrush - Male
This was taken around the end of November or first part of December, 2010.
Taken in my backyard in Seattle (Northwest) Washington, just east of Puget Sound, about 500 feet above sea level. My neighborhood has an abundance of tall evergreen trees. My backyard also has a lot of bushes and laurel trees from which I hang my bird feeders.
Tips and Tricks
- No special tips. I enjoy looking out my kitchen window and watching the birds and hope I can get a good picture.

Sometimes the best photos are just good luck. If you take steps to attract winter birds, you will undoubtedly have some great opportunities for fantastic photos.
