The Swainson’s Thrush (SWTH) is 7 to 7-1/2 inches long. They are fairly common in the summer, usually arriving in our area from the middle of May to June. They head south in late summer for Mexico and South America.
Cheerily cheery cheerily cheery. Cheerily cheer-up cheerily cheerio. The morning song of the Robin is our avian alarm clock that begins just before dawn.
