Eat like a bird

Even as I post this, I was absent-mindedly whistling 'Winter Wonderland' which had just been playing on NPR. When I stopped, a thrush is outside my window carried on, repeating the same note I ended on. Apparently they imitate lots of noises that they hear. Strange experience as it is still quite dark outside and I couldn't see him at first, so I didn't know who (or what) was singing along.

Lots of bird photos lately as it's a busy time of year, I'm not getting out for long walks, so I photograph what comes to me. Looking forward to Christmas break and having time for some nice hikes with the family. (Photo taken 19 December 2010, Galway)
