Swainson's Thrush range

The Swainson's Thrush is one of the most common thrushes seen in North America. This bird prefers a habitat in low areas next to streams or wet areas. In autumn, during their fall migration, one will see flocks of these thrushes, among other species of thrushes, feeding on wild grapes. These thrushes spend their winters in South America. It has been seen as a migrant in Cuba.
