Veery Catharus fuscescens

Identification Tips:

Similar species:

The Veery resides in forests where it is more often heard than seen. It is similar to other thrushes but has smaller, less extensive spotting on the breast and uniformly light brown upperparts. In the western United States, Veeries and Swainson's Thrushes have similar upperpart coloration and spotting on the breast. They can be separated by flank color-gray in Veery and brown in Swainson's, and by vocalizations.
