I am blessed with thrushes in my woodland yard. Eastern Bluebirds have just fledged their first brood from one of my nest boxes. Migrating Swainson's Thrushes were singing a week ago while I planted my hummingbird garden and I spotted one this morning, resting on a limb before dropping to the ground to forage. Wood Thrushes are singing all around the yard daily, establishing breeding territories.
I am interested in what others may know or speculate about this behavior or if you know of this behavior occurring in other species.

For the Love of It...
...the sage sees heaven reflected in Nature as in a mirror, and he pursues this Art, not for the sake of gold or silver, but for the love of the knowledge which it reveals.
