Grey-cheeked Thrush

May 01, 2018

This Grey-cheeked Thrush was on Cape Sable Island. It's very similar to the much rarer Bicknell's Thrush found on Cape Breton Island in the northern highlands. The two thrushes are very difficult to separate in the field. A recording of the song and a good photograph are helpful during migration. Photographed with Sony a99ii and 400mm F4.5 and 1.4Xii lenses, hand held.

Note: I use the English spelling for grey(colour) rather than the incorrect gray(a proper noun or name) used by the ABA.
