Mystery Banded Bird

by Kelly
(Northern B.C., Canada)

Our mystery bird is about the size of a robin, was grey with some slight orange on chest, but had a black neck band that kind of reminded me of a meadow lark. The sighting was in northern British Columbia, Canada.


Can you help us identify it?

Thanks so much Judy...I actually posted for my mom :), so I've sent a pic to her, to see if that's the one! Poor little thing hit the window and she rescued it before the cats could get it. It was winded, but flew off again awhile later. :)

Hi Kelly. Your description sounds very much like a Varied Thrush, They pass through the Seattle area every spring and fall. They have a very unusual call.
