Song Thrush, Turdus philomelos

Song Thrush, 12/19/09, Clissold Park, London, UK

The arrowhead spots help identify the bird in the photo above from the similar but larger Mistle Thrush; thanks to Mark Pearson of Hackney Wildlife for help with the identification. Below, another Song Thrush, this one in summer on the banks of the Avon in Stratford; in this case, thanks go to Richard Morris, who guided me on an early morning bird walk along the river.
