I see them almost every spring as they migrant through the area - they look strongly like thrush but is warbler sized and have greenish back - they are strongly attached to the ground - prefer to walk or run over the ground, looking for food instead of flying. Sometime they like to hang around for a week at my backyard. They often flies in with other warblers. Prefer woodland environment with lots of leaves on the ground when they migrant through.
