Guess the Thrush, and Blogger Access Issues

Can you ID this bird's species from this angle?

Give it a shot in the comments section. And yes, you can happily be anonymous on this one.

And no, this is not the same individual who walks across the street instead of flying. There were three Thrushes hunting and eating the small fruit on November6th.

Which brings us to access issues...
Obviously, if you're reading this, it hasn't happened to you this time but I've gotten a number of emails telling me that access is currently impossible for some people. But one inventive individual found that if he used the link on Sam's site, www.browne-walters.com/gwhat20050120/ that it got him here.

To tell the truth, I'm having a good deal of difficulty posting at the moment, having photos disappear from the draft box, and comments evaporate from the comments section, to name but a few of the mysteries of the moment.

So if something doesn't work the first time through my friends, try, try, again.

My guess is Veery thrush, Also try the pa site in feedback under the Lincoln Tunnel or PABT headings in reopening the birdpark. I will try myself-cyberfluff

Go for it.

As to the Thrush, the belly spots do look rather ghostly don't they?

I fogot to ask, is the birddpark @w39&10? The url for the PA is www.panynj.gov. The Thrush certainly isn't an Ovenbird. I read that the Birdpark is PA property

Yes, the Hell's Kitchen Bird Park is on 39th St. between Ninth and Tenth. The plot on the corner of 39th and Tenth is a dogrun and small community garden. And yes, the PA owns the land, but the neighborhood association holds the lease and is responsible for it's usage.
