SWAINSON'S THRUSH, GREEN, MICHIGAN, MAY 22, 2014
Pentax 55-300 at 300mm
1/320 sec. f8
Also known as the olive-backed thrush, the shy but vocal Swainson's is more often heard than seen while skulking close to the ground in pine forests. It is generally a Western species, the bird books say, but often migrates as far east as Newfoundland in the summer.
