The name implies that the bird is hidden. But not these. Seen so many out in the open since their arrival. Similar to the Swainson's Thrush, these birds have a reddish tail, even eye ring and buffy flanks. The have a reddish brown back and spots from chin to belly, fading. Migratory, where they replace the Swainson's Thrush for the winter.
Under bushes, and dense trees.
This one landed in right in front of me about 10ft, and in the same tree as a Ruby-crowned Kinglet.
