I live near Seattle, WA and for many years now I have heard a very unusual bird call early in the morning for a few days in February and March. This year I became doggedly determine to find out what bird it is. It's a rather loud drawn out whistle in two parts. First part crescendos and second part decrescendos.


Well, this morning I found it! It's a Varied Thrush!! I saw one a few days ago. They migrate through our area. I confirmed the call by looking it up online. Now I can sleep in peace and no longer need to spring out of bed at the crack of dawn!

What a noise!

I was listening to the varied thrush song, and my husband thought the smoke detector had gone off.
