Large, absurdly spotted bird on suet feeder. Book says it’s a wood thrush. Like Noah’s bloody ark outside–and it’s snowing, for god’s sake! When the weather actually gets nice it’ll be like something out of Hitchcock back there!

Edit: It’s not a wood thrush, but the nearly identical brown thrasher, the only difference being eye color and the shape of the breast spots. Thrashers have yellow eyes, wood thrushes have dark eyes. There. Now if the fate of the cosmos ever depends on telling the difference between the two, we’re all set.
