This female Varied Thrush was viewed by many birders at a north central Iowa nature center during the week of Sept. 27-30. Varied Thrush is an atypical species for Iowa, given its primary range along the U.S. Pacific coast states and British Columbia. However, one or two often turn up in the northern half of Iowa each winter. This September’s vagrant may be the earliest one ever reported in Iowa’s fall season.
