A Grey-cheeked Thrush (Catharus minimus) was spotted in October 2014 in a garden in Hvolsvöllur, South Iceland. This Thrush is a breeding bird in North America and has been seen only four times in Iceland. It is the most infrequent of the American Thrushes (Spotted-Breasted Thrushes) to visit Iceland.
The photo was taken in Hvolsvöllur, November 3, 2014.
A Grey-cheeked ThrushCatharus minimus was spotted on Friday, October 31, in Hvolsvöllur (a small town 40 minutes drive east from Selfoss). The Thrush was still there today when I came to look for it. This is a new species for me and it is the fourth time it is seen Iceland. – I was able to add the 200th bird to my list and here is a photo I managed to catch while it was still bright enough 🙂
