Please help ID this bird in Kennesaw GA


Recommended Posts

Thank you for helping me ID a bird that I just saw for the first time in my yard.  Bird has a long yellow beak or bill, dark black head with soft gray back and black tail.  It looked like the chest was reddish or brownish. It was perched on a fence and chirping softly in a repetitive tone, not squawking like a Jay or Crow .  Located in North Georgia, Kennesaw, on June 12 about 5 pm.

I have several bird feeders, suet and mill worms out for the birds. We have a lot of trees and shrubs in our yard, plus we are bordered by forest. There are 5 Bluebird eggs in the birdhouse near where I saw this bird.  So, at first I was concerned it might be a predator, but it flew away.

Thanks,

Welcome to Whatbird!  The suggestion of American Robin sounds good to me.  If it had a speckled breast, it was a juvenile.

Yes.  It was a young Robin.  I looked up a picture and that is the bird. We get a lot of Robins in our yard, but I never saw a juvenile.  He sounded like he was calling out to another bird.  Maybe he was calling out to his parents.

 

Thanks,

Chris
