The Song Thrush (Turdus philomelos) is a thrush that breeds across much of Eurasia. The Song Thrush breeds in forests, gardens and parks, and is partially migratory with many birds wintering in southern Europe, North Africa and the Middle East; it has also been introduced into New Zealand and Australia. by Steve Mackay
Mistle Thrush 21.1.13 at a very snowy Holme Brook Valley - singing a warning song and minutes later a peregrine falcon appears. Cannot believe it has taken us this long to see a Thrush once one of the most common garden birds in the UK still waiting to see a song thrush.
You can make life much easier for blackbirds by mulching your flower beds with leaf-litter, keeping your lawn mown, planting fruiting shrubs and trees (especially dense, thorny ones) and planting climbers against walls #homesfornature
Possibly the best known of the North American spotted brown thrushes and the only one that commonly nests in parks and gardens, the 8-inch-long wood thrush is noted for its incredibly musical song, a flutelike ee-oh-lay. The wood thrush is known by several other names, including bellbird, in reference to its clarionlike song.
