The Hermit Returns

The Hermit Thrush is the state bird of Vermont and a regular visitor to the woodlands of Indiana. This thrush winters in the southern United States and returns north as the temperatures warm in the spring. Thrushes are ground feeders feeding mainly on insects, berries and worms.  A group of thrushes is called a "hermitage".
