Varied Thrush eating dogfood?

Hi Tweets!

As I am an amateur birder, this may be a silly question, but I'm willing to chance that to learn more.

I am not surprised when my brave Steller's Jays steal dogfood, but I was startled to see a Varied Thrush sneak up to the back door and steal some! Is this normal?

I have a large yard that usually is a feeding area for 6-8 Varied Thrush and 3-4 Robins each day. I also have 3 black-oiled sunflower feeders, a suet feeder, and 3 bird baths. Should I have something more for them? I can't do worms...
