There is a feral cat in the neighbourhood that dines well at other people’s doors (pity is taken by some around here – he’s a tough old cat that has survived several Quebec winters out of doors) but which likes to snack on other wild critters including birds. Today he missed his supper and we had sight of garden Hermit Thrush preening his somewhat ruffled feathers before flying off to fight another day.

Afraid the picture is a tad grainy – across the garden through a window but the ID is clear.
