Wood Thrush

Hello and Happy Monday.


I am sharing the Wood Thrush, it has a beautiful song. I always enjoy hearing them sing. Sometimes I hear them singing from my deck, they breed in the forest next to our house. I often hear them during my walks on our local fire roads. These are some recent photos from our walks.  The best photos I have  of the Wood Thrush, so far.




The Wood Thrush is a medium sized Thrush with upper brown parts and white underparts.


Their breast and belly have dark brown spots, they have a white eye ring and pink legs.







I hope you enjoyed my photos and post.
As always I thank you for stopping by and as always I appreciate your comments.

My list of memes for today, I hope to see you there. Thanks to both of the host below.

Hello,

Beautiful photos. The last photo is superb! The Trush is a beautiful bird. The norwegian word is Trost, and not so different from your word :)
Happy Monday!

Suzanne Prickett said...

Your Wood Thrush is very pretty! I'll have to look for them on You Tube to see if anyone has posted them singing. We've had some pretty songs coming out of the trees in my neighborhood this summer, but, I don't know what birds are singing. Happy Monday, Eileen!

Felicia said...

Hello Eileen! These are just lovely shots of the thrush, a very pretty little bird & one I enjoy hearing in my garden too!
Have a great week!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Isn't he lovely! And I can almost hear him singing in that last picture. Also from your great pictures and description I think even I might recognize this guy if I'm ever lucky enough to spot one.

Small City Scenes said...

Interesting--the Thrush. I love the singing.

D. Kissinger said...

Such sweet birdies.

I love the ones that sing ................we only have seagulls around right now. Not exactly a melodic sound. LOL

Rose said...

I think the last time I saw a wood thrush was in Tennessee, over 40 years ago. when I was still home...and I sure did enjoy seeing these.

Pat Tillett said...

Hi Eileen! Great photos of this beautiful bird. It is my favorite shades of brown.

Lynne said...

I need to listen to bird sons to do some identifying.
I practice it a bit, many years back.
I justv recognize a few.
I think I will check out Brown Thrush right now.
Ahhh yes, the benefits of You Tube and the web . . .

William Kendall said...

Quite a pretty bird.

Kerry said...

Omigosh, the wood thrush is SUCH a lovely bird. We don't have them here in this part of the world.

Prunella Pepperpot said...

A truly beautiful bird which you have captured so well. I love listening to the song of the thrush in our garden.
Have a wonderful Wednesday Eileen :)

Lea said...

Great photos, especially the last one!
Have a wonderful day!

Mary Cromer said...

Beautiful...I love these Wood Thrushes and sad that their numbers are on the decline. I know that we have them near our home and I am thankful. I went to a site to hear their song after you mentioned it and I recognized it, but never knew who the "artist" was ;) Thank you for everything~

Breathtaking said...

Hello Eileen!:) A beautiful Thrush, and lovely photos. I read somewhere that it's declining in numbers, so you are very lucky to see and hear it where you live.

Phil Slade said...

Lovely shots of the Wood Thrush Eileen. I just wish I could hear its song right now. Your Wood Thrush reminds me of our own Mistle Thrush, another fine and loud songster. Enjoy the rest of your week.

Helma said...

The grid can also sing beautifully. The wood trush too. Nice to get this songbird on the picture. Have another great week.
Greetings, Helma

Our world just wouldn't be the same without its wonderful birds and their bird song.
Lovely series of photographs.

All the best Jan

David Gascoigne said...

Wood Thrush has become increasingly rare in recent years, and I consider myself lucky if I see three or four in a year. It is surely one of the most glorious songsters in all the bird world.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Hi Eileen

I love the Wood Thrush's song! Good photos! Will be back Saturday if I can to join Sat Critters

Jeevan said...

Lovely capture on the wood thrust and pretty detail over its features!
