I didn't get to see any speckled juvs this year, so this moulty bird was a nice surprise today. TTTW.

Thank you for your comments, and good birding!

Habitat
Woodland of various kinds, usually deciduous or mixed but purely coniferous in some areas. Found in lower branches of trees and in bushes and shrubs, usually feeding on the ground. Common in parks and gardens, especially in Britain, also hedgerows and road verges but avoids most open spaces, except maybe on migration. May enter buildings in very harsh weather (Opus)
