Perhaps an illustration of the unusual migration, this year, our Wood Thrushes haven't shown up. Ovenbirds and Veeries are plentiful but no Wood Thrushes.

One of the highlights is when the thrushes begin to teach their young to sing proper songs.  Patiently, the adult runs through it's verse, and then the youngsters give it a go and scramble everything.  I can imagine the parent shaking it's head, no no no- like THIS...   This happens for a few days, and eventually they catch on.  I've heard both hermit and wood thrushes go through this "schooling", but never a veery.
