Blast from the Past: Junco Competition
A 40-year-old Poem about Stiles Thomas

Monday Mystery Answered


On Monday, I wrote:

John Workman drew this bird on his impressive 2006 Celery Farm Big Year checklist.

John asks, "What bird is it?"

We had several great answers: Diane L. suggested a vireo; Ginny suggested catbird; Alice L. suggested Rusty Blackbird or American Pipit; and Steph Swanzey, the very first to reply,  suggested Rusty Blackbird as well.

When John suggested the mystery, I guessed it was some sort of Turdus -- thrush.

Who was right?

John Workman, the horse's mouth, says:

I admit the drawing is sort of “Turdy,“ but I was attempting to do a Rusty Blackbird.    

Congrats to Steph and Alice!
