The female Varied Thrush *is* still present today, Thursday April 5. 
Not ten minutes after a Northern Shrike scared everything out of the
yard, the thrush flew in from the west and was after seed and suet
again at 1:15 PM.  On all occasions I've seen her, she stays low in
shrubs or on the ground (er, snow).  Has a lot of food and water
options around here, with the crabapples along Jefferson for several
blocks, many feeders, Oregon creek, and the other ravine across 21st
Ave E with old apple trees etc.  I'm wondering now if the bird possibly
wintered in the area, since there were the reports of female Varied
Thrush from the Ellery House and even my crummy apartment yard back in
December too.  

Very nice treat for us stuck indoors with fevers.
