Culinary surprise

Predictable, grackle with chestnut.
Not expected, hermit thrush with monster worm. I was not close and didn't want to spook the thrush. This November worm was the equivalent of a huge Italian sausage.

Huge surprise. Face off. Cardinal vs thrush.

Cardinal won. Never saw a cardinal dine on worm before.

She'd take a bite, chew, then another bite, chew. Eventually she had enough and flew off. Nobody else came for the worm. I waited about ten minutes. Abandoned protein.
