Anybody remember the villains in 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E."?

Recommended Posts

Central Lexington County, central SC.  A band of dense woods between 25 and 75 yards wide, on either side of the drainage creek cutting through a suburban complex of soccer fields.  Four sightings - two singletons and two more moving together, although the pair could have been the first two combined..  Only one left the mid-upper canopy to land on the ground within a few feet of the trees, where it remained briefly.

Too spotty for Veery.  No Hermit has been seen before Halloween in the last decade.  eBird bar charts show Swainson's, Gray-cheeked, and Wood as the remaining suspects in late Sept / early Oct.

On a Wood, the spots are more distinct and go much farther down the belly, and there's more white on the face.

There's too much spotting for Gray-cheeked, and GCTH wouldn't have an eyering.

Process of elimination leaves Swainson's. 

Photos are of the two birds seen separately.

Oh, they were a evil spy organization named 'T.H.R.U.S.H.".  Thanks.
