Sunday report Sept 4th Prospect

From Rob Bate:

25 species but pretty quiet

I did have a gray-cheeked type thrush at the edge of the upper pool between the inlet and the dog beach. It was redder than I am used to but not a Hermit (tail not distinctly redder), a wood thrush (no heavy spotting) or Veery (definately spotted with obvious olive tones in the back.) Cheek was gray not buffy and it had no eye ring. The interesting thing is I played a Bicknell's chip and it really perked up looking right in my direction. Then I played a gray-cheeked chip and it flew away. Rob J thought it a good candidate for a Bicknell and now I think it did seem really small for what I am used to for a Gray-cheek or Swainson's.
