Hermit Thrush in winter

Part of the pleasure of birding is finding birds where you don't expect them, and this Hermit Thrush in the dried-up cattails along a stream in Prineville (Ochoco Creek, I think) was a surprise for me during the Christmas Bird Count on Dec. 29. This spot is several miles from the nearest forest, which is where one would expect to find this bird.
