Confirm Swainson's Thrush AND Ovenbird?


Recommended Posts

These were seen in Fairfax County, VA, on 11 May, and the photos were taken only minutes apart and only a few feet apart, in the same woodpile.  At the time, I thought these were all Swainson's Thrushes.  Upon close examination, I think that #1 and #2 are a pair of Swainson's Thrushes, while photos #3 and #4 (both of a single bird) appear to be an Ovenbird, showing a hint of the dark streaked crest.  Confirmed as Swainson's AND Ovenbird?
