Swainson’s Thrush

The Swainson’s Thrush is a slim, medium brown bird with a spotted chest, large puffy eye rings, a round head and a short-straight bill.  You are most likely to see this bird on the interior of the Sanctuary along Egret Espy or Holly Paths, foraging for berries or plucking bugs from leaves close to the ground.  If you listen carefully, you can hear their flute-like songs on summer mornings and evenings.
