wood thrush, but I'm not at all sure. there are just so many other birds that look similar. After a long search I determined which bird it was by a close look at the beak.
There are still other birds with similarly colored beaks, but this one seemed to match the best, so I decided it was a wood thrush. If anyone knows that I'm wrong then I'd love to know it. Things like that help us all learn more. But even if I am wrong, this is only one insignificant blog out of thousands. I'm just happy I found this little bird.
Oh. I found this little bird while it was close to the ground. It was hiding from a hawk. Many of the animals were staying close to the ground while a hawk flew over the forest. I guess it's safer down there while under cover of trees. That tactic doesn't seem to work as well out in the open. At least it didn't for that snake from a few posts ago.
The neurologist I see recently gave me a memory test that I'll learn the results of next time I go back. I'm hoping that maybe that's the start of my memory returning, but I'm very doubtful. Along with my memory goes my positive attitude sometimes, so I stay away from the internet during those times. I say this so you may ignore any negative things about my health that I mention. I'm mostly okay.
There were a few good sightings that I've had, and I also got to do something that I've never done before! I can't wait to post about that! Most of you will think it isn't much of course, because it really isn't. But I'm still very excited.
Is anyone else geekily awaiting that new Blogger interface like I am?
Until next time, Batma... uh, Ratty, signing off!
