I am seeing a few Song Thrush birds in the garden lately. They are a welcome sight indeed.
A few simple facts about these lovely wild birds:
The song thrush has a warm-brown head, wings and back, and a cream breast covered in dark brown spots the shape of upside down hearts. It is around 23cm in length, slightly smaller than a blackbird.
The song thrush eats worms, snails, caterpillars and fruit. Snails are a particular favourite. Song thrushes are renowned for the practice of smashing the snail shells against rocks with a flick of the head, allowing them to get to the soft parts inside.
