not sure what this is?

I saw this bird and could not place it - looking through the internet I thought maybe it was a brown thrasher, but it didn't look completely the same. 

Apologies for the low res photo, I was not expecting to see it and had to whip my phone out quickly before it flew off. 

  • Hi Suzanne I'll bump this back up with you not getting a reply yet.
    I'm wondering if it is a Mistle Thrush with some Leucistic feathers.
    Hopefully the others will be able to tell you what it is.

    Hi Alan,

    Thank you very much! Ahh that's what those white tail feathers were - I didn't realise you could have only certain leucistic feathers, I thought it had to be a whole group of them.

    It did seem to move like a Mistle thrush when I looked at a video online.

    Thanks again,
