How to identifyA familiar and popular garden songbird whose numbers have declined markedly on farmland and in towns and cities. It's smaller and browner than a Mistle Thrush with smaller spotting. Its habit of repeating song phrases distinguish it from singing Blackbirds. It likes to eat snails, which it breaks into by smashing them against a stone with a flick of the head.
