Green-Wood Bicknell's Thrush
Found this thrush on 10/20/12 in Green-Wood Cemetery, Brooklyn. It looked like a Gray-cheeked Thrush only had noticeable rufous on tail and wings. When it hopped over the hillside and out of sight we played a Bicknell's Thrush call. It responded immediately, assuming an alert posture and hopping closer and closer to us. When it disappeared into some shrubs we played a Gray-cheeked Thrush call. It didn't respond. Played the Bicknell's again, it hopped back onto the path in front of us.
