Swainson’s thrush is a small aerial insectivore common throughout Alaska. It is a long-distant migrant that breeds in western to northern North America, and spends its winters from southern Mexico to northern Argentina. In the Yukon Territory, Swainson’s thrush inhabits willow shrub and various forest types. In the Alaska taiga, Swainson’s thrush typically inhabits forested areas more than shrub thickets. While Swainson’s thrush are common throughout Alaska, populations are reported as declining across their range, particularly in Alaska and the Northeast.
