On the way out to see the Bicknell's Thrush, we were treated to a rather convenient Black Vulture hanging out with a large group of Turkey Vultures. I have photos that show it's very short tail, crested grey head, and silver wing tips as it flies next to a TUVU.

Individual found by Alan Wormington earlier this morning, along west gravel path to the tip, near the benches. Very detailed photos taken, showing a slender, active thrush somewhat resembling Grey-cheeked and Hermit. Far smoother, browner, and warmer coloured overall than any GCTH I've ever seen, with rufous primaries and tail. Posture, behaviour, and face not at all like Hermit Thrush. Aside from many detailed photos and accounts by other observers, we believe we collected a sample of its feces. OBRC report to be submitted.
