Grey-cheeked Thrush

March 20, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

The Grey-cheeked Thrush has the most haunting song of any bird I've heard, except maybe for the Varied Thrush in the deep rain forests of British Columbia.

The Grey-cheeked Thrush is a hard bird to find in Nova Scotia. Your best chance is in the highlands of Cape Breton Island. The mega rare Bicknell's Thrush is a close relative and for a long time was considered the same species.

Laura and I were parked in our motorhome in a provincial park at the northern tip of the Great Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland when one sang from the thick brush nearby. My heart pounded and I so wanted to see it but it never revealed itself.
