Confirm Numerous Swainson's Thrushes?


Recommended Posts

These many thrushes were seen during an unprecedented swarm of thrush migration in woods behind my house in Vienna, VA, during 4-13 May 2022.  In these few days, in a 50-foot stretch of woods and underbrush, we had more non-robin thrushes than I had seen in my entire life.  Are all of these Swainson's Thrushes, or did other species get into this mix?  I promise that thrush lovers with enjoy at least #18 of the 20 below.  With apologies for the cascade of photos from this migration below, help/confirmation is most appreciated.

You definitely have some Swainson’s in there. There may be a few Gray-cheeked as well, abut I have no experience there so  I’ll leave that to the experts. 
 

plesse consider limiting posts to fewer bird than this. It gets very confusing for us to say which photo(birds) are which species.
