Good Morning,

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

So great to bird in the dim morning light on a crisp day with a cup of
coffee in hand.
