It's been an exciting day at Five Rivers Environmental Education Center in Delmar, where birders on the Beaver Tree Trail report seeing a Bicknell's thrush. Designated a species of special concern in New York State, this is the first confirmed sighting of a Bicknell's thrush at Five Rivers in 38 years of record-keeping. In New York, the Bicknell's thrush breeds at high elevations in the Adirondack and Catskill mountains, the southern-most boundary of its breeding range.

Additional information about Bicknell's thrush is available from DEC's online fact sheet, and from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's All About Birds online database.
