Thrush in MT?

Recommended Posts

I think this is a Swainson's. Veery would have a much riche color and different head pattern. The spotting vary faint and in general lots of features point to Veery, but this bird just seems off to me for Veery. I'm not certain though, what do the rest of you think?

Definitely Swainson's for these reasons

  1. It has a full eye-ring 
  2. The overall color
  3. The bill's different (black tip)
  4. Pale comes up, making it look like it surrounds the bottom of the head
  5. You can see the Spectacles.

I don't know the age, but I don't think it's an adult bird.
