On Swainson’s Day

Today I saw so many Swainson’s Thrushes they were uncountable. Many Northern Fickers, some fall warblers and a few early White-throated and Lincoln’s Sparrows and a Junco.

    Great photos! Sounds like you had a nice walk. I really like the Swainson’s. I haven’t seen a Swainson’s yet and seeing how pretty it is in your photo makes me excited to see it one day.

    I like learning the names of these birds. I don’t know if we have similar ones on the west coast?

      There are many similar West coast birds. Hope you have fun learning those too 🙂

    I have never been to a place where there were so many Swainson’s Thrushes they were uncountable…sounds heavenly, Sherry. Enjoyed each of your photos too, especially the pensive Swainson’s Thrush and gorgeous red-bellied woodpecker.
