I checked Hermit Thrush and found quite similar calls on Xeno-canto:XC21120, Recorded by Paul Marvin, 11/10/2014, page 3andXC65824, Recorded by Ian Cruishank, 11/08/2010, PG 4Kevin SpencerKlamath Falls, ORSent from my Verizon LG Smartphone------ Original message------From: Tom & Allison MickelDate: Sun, Oct 20, 2019 9:19 AMTo: <lanebirds...>;<obol...>;Cc: Subject:[obol] Question about Catharus thrush callOBOL & Lane Birders,
I recorded a Catharus thrush this morning on my morning walk on the ridgeline trail in SE Eugene. I've heard the bird calling in the same location four mornings in the last week. In addition to the call I recorded, I've also heard a very high-pitched thin note from a thrush in the same location. After listening to calls of Catharus thrush on Cornell's website, it sounds most like a Gray-cheeked Thrush, but I'm wondering what other people think. The recorded call sounds most like the second recording on Cornell's website, and the high-pitched thin note sounded most like the fourth recording. The recording was made at 7:20am, and I saw the thrush hopping up the trail in front of me, but could not see any details because it was too dark.
