ONTbird subscribers,

The male Varied Thrush reported to eBird by Jason King is still present. It
has been coming to a feeder somewhat periodically at #629 Pottery
Settlement Road since at least Feb 28. The homeowner is amenable to birders
coming out but is adamant that they don't trample around his property
disturbing birds/feeders etc. The feeders are easily visible from the road,
so I don't expect a problem but you never know. The location is remote and
the homeowner has requested that if people are coming out to see the bird,
they send him a text before hand just to let him know. His number is

I was there for about 30 minutes, during which, the bird was in view for
about 10 seconds. It landed in the top of a tree in the yard before flying
directly away from the road and not returning.

To reach the location you can take Hwy 401 to ON-37 at Belleville where you
head north to Hwy 7. Turn east on Hwy 7 and then south on Pottery
Settlement Road. The bird is coming to the feeders at #629.
