Lovely shot Harold. Like the pose of the bird with its catch. The big black eye is kind of mesmerising. The twirl branch he stand on adds up a little kick.

The eye stands out well from the brown colour, Yves. That brown colour is hard to spot sometimes against the rotting wood and leaves at this time of year.

Very nice pose, he looks pretty pleased with his catch. I especially like the mood you've captured here and the background tones complement him perfectly.

He seems to be deciding where he's going to eat lunch, Heather.

Debra Plett

Awesome timing Harold with a perfect title.

Hermit Thrushes are very good at catching grubs, Debra. Even in the winter I doubt if they ever go hungry.

This Hermit Thrush jumped onto a huckleberry bush and came up with a grub.
