Gray-cheeked / Bicknell's Thrush, Boston, Massachusetts, May 2004

Catharus minimus/bicknelli. At the time I was taking these photos on the Boston Common on 5/20, I thought they all were of the same bird, but now I am not sure. Based on song and comments from other observers, I'm fairly certain that most of these shots are of the same Gray-cheeked Thrush, but shots 2, 3, 4 and 9 might be a different bird and might be Bicknell's Thrush. There was a second thrush there that morning that appeared to have a redder tail than the Gray-cheeked, but no one heard it vocalize and it could not be positively identified. Feel free to offer your opinion on the identity of any of them by clicking the comment link at the bottom of the page.
