  • I'm pretty sure it's a Song Thrush.

  • It looks to be a warm brown on the topside so I'd vote for Song Thrush. Mistles normally look a shade greyer.

  • I,m for Song Thrush

  • Looks like a song thrush to me, too! :-)

  • thankyou!!! there is another one that visits which does appear to be a shade different so maybe that could be a mistle.

  • I agree, Song Thrush.  Hope you get mistles too - they are bigger and greyer, with more "spotty" spots - though I suppose it's hard to compare if the bird is on its own. =)

  • Yeah, I'd go with Song Thrush too

  • I would say it's a Song Thrush too.  It is smaller and browner than a mistle thrush.

    For comparison purposes, below are photos of both.

    Hope this is of help.
