Forgot to update the count for this species after initially entering just 1 in the app; count updated the evening after the checklist was submitted. The most numerous thrush in the park this morning; Joseph Kurtz had similar numbers later in the day.

Very gray thrushes overall with no rufous in face and unmarked (or very nearly so) faces. I had 4 in one binocular view perched above and on the compost pile in the garden. Minutes later I saw many scattered across the lawn near the amphitheater and breakwall; had 8 in view at once and at least 13 total there. In addition, one was seen in a mountain ash along the service road and another on the nature center parking lot. The latter may have been a repeat of one of the amphitheater or garden birds and therefore is not included in the total. So, this is either an exact count or a slight undercount.

These high numbers make sense in light of the high volume of GCTH flight calls I heard from the top of Sugarloaf Mountain last night.

3 on lawn near garden, rest near amphitheater. Also forgot to update the count for this species after initially entering just 3 in the app.
