I saw the remains of a bird today I did not recognize, and it was pretty mangled so it was hard to describe it. It was about the size of a robin. However, it had a dark brown mottled body like nothing I have ever seen. I have included below a tail feather from the bird which is 5 inches long. I am sure it is not a thrush or a woodcock or a kestrel. So what was it?
Location is Great Bay, Portsmouth, New Hampshire, United States.
