Mistle Thrush - Turdus viscivorus
The Mistle Thrush is known as the 'stormcock', livening many a bleak February day with its song delivered from an exposed perch despite lashing rain and wind. It also nests early laying from late February to late May, producing two broods. The four pale blue eggs are incubated by the female over fourteen days, and fledging takes place during the following two weeks.
The Mistle Thrush is significantly larger than the Song Thrush with a length of eleven inches, and is fiercely defensive of its territory, fearlessly attacking larger birds that venture in.
