Gray-cheeked Thrush

Catharus minimus

A rare spring vagrant with a few records from late May to mid-June, mostly in mid-June, and an even rarer summer vagrant with a single early July record of what was likely a failed breeding bird and very early southbound wanderer. It is found much more frequently during the fall and has been seen annually during the month of September when coverage is present at that time of year with a peak in numbers often around September 10th. It is typically only in seen in very small numbers though on multiple occasions larger influxes of birds have been recorded.
