Blue Rock-Thrush


This blue rock-thrush caused quite a stir in Oregon at the end of April, 2024, when it made its first ever appearance in the United States.

A hobbyist photographer, Michael Sanchez, snapped a photo of a blue rock-thrush as he was testing out a new camera at Hug Point. He didn’t know how rare the bird was until he posted it to social media, and every birder in North America went wild! The event made national news with NPR, Smithsonian Magazine, and a variety news stations covering the story.

These approximately 9-inch long birds can be seen all over Japan and in other seaside cities in Asia. They have friendly personalities and often breed within human habitats.
