I just witnessed 2 Gray-cheeked Thrushes side by side at my backyard cascading bird baths! These elusive dull Thrushes have been brightening the past three days in my yard in Southern Shores, NC. In addition, and in close proximity, was a juvenile (dull) Rose-breasted Grosbeak. It too came to my bird bath.
Also, yesterday afternoon I got to see an Ovenbird walking in my yard and was surprised when it picked up a sunflower seed to eat. Cool... and unusual?
So great to bird in the dim morning light on a crisp day with a cup of coffee in hand.
