We found some interesting thrushes today near Santee.
A total of 4 Wood Thrushes were at Santee NWR, Pine Island Unit. They were in two separate pairs, and each pair was co-located with a Swainson's Thrush, convenient for comparisons. This was flagged "rare" by eBird, I presume because it's late for them.
At Audubon's Francis Beidler Forest Sanctuary, we ran into a Gray-Cheeked Thrush right in front of their visitor center. 95% certain on the ID, but will post pictures later to confirm.
