Song thrush (T philomelos)


The song thrush fieldfare is migatory in Sweden, so I’m guessing this is another Sign of Spring. When I took this photo, this bird was one of four hunting assiduously on the grass of Keiller’s Park.

Less than 24 hours later… Oh dear! Originally I identified this as a song thrush (T. philomelos/bj√∂rktrast); it’s actually a fieldfare (T. pilaris/taltrast).
