Comments:
Met Simon in the park after a long day of my own. Our main target was TEWA for him - I had heard one earlier near the Neathermead arches, and later in the day, got to others on it. We went to the spot near the arches, and found the tall trees to be very active, hard to keep track of everything as it moved. I pished the birds down, and they all came low - 20 or more birds, some of which we hadn't detected from high (Prothonotary). It wasn't easy to sort through them, but we saw 15 warbler species. Afterward, the TEWA started singing a lot. Eventually we found it and got eyes on it. It had been sitting on one branch, deep into a tree, singing over and over. The rest of the evening was spent trying to get a recording of the BITH, which we were not able to do.

Gray-cheeked/Bicknell's Thrush

Extensive yellow in the lower mandible - 2/3ds of the way to the tip, rusty color in the tail stood out compared to the browner body, cheek gray, but a bit warmer overall than I would expect for GCTH. Called once, but not diagnostically.

Entering the midwood from Center Drive between containers 7 and 8, take a right on the first path, put your back to the containers. The bird was staying in that section.
