My neighbor in southeast Shoreline, has had one coming to her feeders for much of the feeder watch sessions. I haven't seen this one, but she has shown me the Hermit Thrush picture in Sibley's, so I'm pretty confident that she has ID'd the bird correctly. I live about a block away, and in the past, I have banded both a Hermit Thrush and a Swanson's Thrush, so I know that a Hermit Thrush is entirely possible. This one is mainly eating the dried mealworms in the suet cylinder.
