One More Left to Find

The winter species roll is filling out nicely as we march towards December.  Already I have observed Yellow Rumped Warblers, Red Breasted Nuthatches, White Throated Sparrows, and Pine Siskins, as well as winter American Robins.  That leaves us with one more potential cold season guest which has not checked in.  The Hermit Thrush visited and even frequented the feeders for the past three years.  I have never determined if we have one bird, or more.  If one, what is the possibility the Grim Reaper has claimed that bird and the visits end?  I will need to ensure something tempting is available and so far suet is that temptation, although historically peanut butter does better still.  The wait is on.. when? if?  We shall see!
