The hermit thrush (Catharus guttatus) is a medium-sized North American thrush of the Turdidae family.
Hermit thrushes breed in coniferous or mixed woods across Canada, southern Alaska, and the northeastern and western United States. While most hermit thrushes migrate to wintering grounds in the southern United States and south to Central America, some remain in northern coastal US states and southern Ontario. They usually breed in forests, but will sometimes winter in parks and wooded suburban neighborhoods.
They forage on the forest floor, also in trees or shrubs, mainly eating insects and berries.
