Song Thrush



About Song Thrush
Compact, relatively small thrush with upright stance. Brown upperparts; creamy white underparts, spotted with dark brown; buffish-orange tinge on breasts and flanks; whitish chin. Golden-brown underwings show in flight. Pinkish legs; golden-brown bill, darker at tip; light brown legs.

In the spring and summer, the female will build a cup nest of grasses, twigs, roots, dead leaves, mosses and lichens, lined with wood pulp or mud in a tree, shrub or building, up to 12 feet (3.6m) above the ground. They have 4-6 light blue eggs, sparsely spotted, speckled or blotched with black or purplish-brown, taken care of by the female.

The Song Thrush loves to sing loudly through most of the year, using repeated phrases and often minicking other birds. It is a garden bird over much of its range, usually foraging alone with a characteristic habit of pausing with its head cocked to one side, as if listening for prey. It eats lots of snails, especially in very dry or cold weather when other prey is scarce, smashing their shells open by beating them against a rock with its bill. It pulls the snail out of the shell and wipes it on the ground before it eats it.

In the regions with mild winters, this bird will stay on or near their breeding territories throughout the year, and start singing in the fall to assert their ownership.
