(Cyanecula svecica - formerly Luscinia svecica)

The Bluethroat is an especially attractive small Eurasian passerine whose range extends just into western Alaska, where it may be seen in the Nome environs. Once grouped with the thrushes, it is now classified in the family of old world flycatchers, Muscicapidae. The species is an exceptionally adept mimic and may be heard singing many of the songs of other birds in the area, often several different songs in a row without interruption.
