The Grey-cheeked Thrush was moving about in company with the Say's Phoebe on and about Sandy Cove Beach, Halifax. One can imagine rather romantically that they have migrated together for some time.
It is almost identical to the rare Bicknell's Thrush and reliably separated by voice especially since they often nest in the same locations. It is a rugged northern thrush.
