November Week 1 The Song Thrush

The Song Thrush

The Song Thrush is smaller than either a Mistle Thrush or Blackbird. The male and female are similar with warm brown upper parts, lighter coloured underparts and dark speckles pointing towards the head. Juvenile Song Thrushes also have pale buff streaks on their backs.

In flight the Song Thrush usually flies low, below tree top height, from bush to bush.

What does The Song Thrush eat?

Diet: Worms, snails and fruit.

They eat snails only when the ground has become baked or frozen and they cannot dig out any worms. To eat it, they smash the snail's shell against a rock. Blackbirds often steal the snail after the Song Thrush has cracked it open.
