Animals 1-10


Animal du jour #1: THRUSH

A bird belonging to the subfamily Turdinae, family Muscicapidae (Turdidae in some old classifications). Typical thrushes are small to medium-sized songbirds that forage on the ground for insects and other invertebrates, and build open, cup-shaped nests. Many thrushes have intricate and beautiful songs. European blackbirds, redwings, fieldfares, ring ouzels, American robins, solitaires, and bluebirds are all thrushes. Thrushes are most closely related to birds such as stonechats, nightingales, European robins, wheatears, and Old World flycatchers.
