Bicknell's Thrush (Catharus bicknelli)
Vulnerable
User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1099)
United States (New York) Whiteface Mountain - We almost didn't make it to our destination, with the primary goal of seeing and photographing this rarity due to vehicle problems. In the end the result was better than we could have hoped for. This is normally a difficult bird to photograph, even when found.

A previous encounter produced what I would barely consider a record shot. This was so much better. This species breeds within a few hundred feet of high elevations such as this. Here it is between 3500-4000 ft up. Most breed northeast of Quebec City.

I’m just now catching up. Congratulations on its first ever upload. As I have no experience with this species I probably would have thought it was a Hermit Thrush given the rufous tail. Great job despite the trouble you had.

Thanks. It was worth the effort. The bird is rarely identified except on its breeding territory where it can be heard singing. That way an ID can be positively made.
