Re: [cayugabirds-l] Some kind of thrush?

2018-04-16 Thread Carol Cedarholm
Wow, thank you all for advising me on the Brown Thrasher, which I believe
it really is.  The yellow eye and the wing bars are real clear indicators.
I will try to get another picture of it with a better view of the beak.

OK, I’ll buy that. I didn’t see the expected downcurve until you pointed it 
out, but the yellow eyes are probably more definitive (and the wing-bars).

I’d so no. Thrasher bill is pronouncedly longer.

Does anyone know what kind of thrush this is.  Was in my backyard the last few 
days foraging on the ground.  I have definitely had 2 hermit thrushes, but this 
one looks redder with bolder spots on the breast. Thanks, Carol
