[Tweeters] Varied Thrush: the more things change, the more they stay the same

Maybe there are just years when they stay in more concentrated groups at higher elevations? Weather, food supply…?

Here is a November 1997 Tweeters post from Mary Poss:

It's curious you should mention a lack of these birds at lower elevations.
I have never seen as many at higher elevations as i did this fall. There
were very large and active flocks up to 5000 ft at least until two weeks
ago. I'm used to seeing varied thrush as solitary individuals, not in
flocks of 30+.
