Max, hopefully Varied Thrushes came to your raked out spot under your feeder. We only learned they foraged this way during the last time it snowed when we shoveled our driveway and they appeared. The Thrushes are still here and are still probing the grass areas and coming up with something to eat!

I'm jealous of your thrushes, Christine! I usually get smaller ground feeders (juncos and sparrows mostly) but I have had the same finding, that they love exposed dirt in the snow, so I rake the snow under my seed feeders for them.

We have 6 Varied Thrushes (and counting) in our yard here in Snoqualmie. We shoveled the snow on our driveway and parts of our grass. Immediately birds came to the exposed areas for foraging. So far there are varied thrush, robin, junco, flicker, bewick's wren, song sparrow and they are all getting what they can in the exposed areas. The Field of Dreams movie is echoing in my head...if you shovel it, they will come!
