Bicknell’s Thrush

ABA 2

(Catharus bicknelli)

Bicknell’s Thrush, once considered conspecific with Gray-cheeked Thrush, is found only at elevations over 3000 feet, and is largely limited to the White Mountains of New Hampshire and Western Maine, the Green Mountains of Vermont, and the Adirondack Region of New York state. It begins to sing before dawn, but becomes largely silent by about 8:30 AM, after which it is extremely difficult to find. The challenge in seeing it therefore is to somehow find a way to get to its high elevation habitat prior to sunrise.
