Comments: I lucked into this one. As I was walking down a trail through the woods I saw it fly from the trail up to a nearby branch, and I got just one photo before it flew away. I assumed it was a hermit thrush, but a friend studied the photo and told me it’s a Swainson’s. I had never seen one before.
