The Wood Thrush.


     The Wood Thrush is the favorite songbird of most bird lovers, especially those who have not heard the Hermit Thrush.  It arrives from the 23rd to 28th of April and leaves during the second and third weeks of September.

     It nests during the middle of May in damp woods and timbered creek bottoms and ravines, and comes into the city freely to breed.  Some places in town where it nests regularly are Penn Valley Park, Karnes Boulevard, 36th and Gillham, Armour and Paseo, 46th and Gillham, Rockhill and Country Club regions, Swope Park and all the cemeteries.
