Gray-cheeked Thrush?


Recommended Posts

This poor bird hit my window; took a while to recover but has now flown off, hopefully with no ill effects! Can't see it in these pictures, but had a spotted breast like a Hermit Thrush, but the tail isn't right for one of them. Is it a Gray-cheeked Thrush? Taken today in mid-Florida. Thanks!

Yes, that's a Gray-cheeked Thrush, probably in the middle of migrating to South America. Note the very faint eyering and plain gray face. It's too gray overall to be a Bicknell's, lacks the buffy face/eyering of a Swainson's, and lacks the reddish tail of a Hermit.

I hope it'll be okay! It still has to fly for a long time...
