I got out for an hour this morning and was able to catch shots of two new birds - new to me, at least. I use the National Geographic Birds of North America as my primary ID guide, with the Cornell All About Birds site as by secondary. But I'm still not able to figure out what these guys are. Any ideas?

I was able to ID this guy, however (not that he's a hard one!) :)

Looks like a gray catbird and a brown thrasher to me.

Geeze, and both are even on the same page of my guide... I'm still getting the hang of IDing them - thanks!

I can see the Brown Thrasher, no problem. But based on the picture of the catbird, I don't think I'd ever have guessed it. In the book it's shown as a deeper blue/gray, with a black cap, where mine has a warmer tone set.

But still very exciting to have seen two new species!

Have patience. All things are difficult before they become easy ;)
