ThrushThrushes are plump, soft-plumaged, small to medium-sized birds, inhabiting wooded areas, and often feed on the ground or eat rose hips. Most species are grey or brown in colour, often with speckled underparts.

They are insectivorous, but most species also eat worms, snails, and fruit. Many species are permanently resident in warm climes, while other migrate to higher latitudes during summer, often over considerable distances.

Thrushes build cup-shaped nests, sometimes lining them with mud. They lay two to five speckled eggs, sometimes laying two or more clutches per year. Both parents help in raising the young.

The songs of some species are considered to be among the most beautiful in the avian world.

The thrush may be found in wooded areas foraging on the ground for berries and insects. This small bird is found in a variety of areas throughout the north western part of North America. If you listen for their sound, listen for a different whistle, often fuzzy or metal sounding. The thrush usually sings at dawn or dusk. It also enjoys a song after rain.

You can find the nest of the thrush in a tall tree. They build their nest 5 to 15 feet off the ground at the base of a branch. The male sings to protect his nest.

You will find thrush throughout the year. While they stick to more wooded areas in the summer months, during winter they can be found along roads and in yards foraging for food.
