From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Mistle Thrush (Turdus viscivorus) is a member of the thrush family Turdidae.
It is found in open woods and cultivated land over all of Europe and much of Asia. Many northern birds move south during the winter, with migrating birds sometimes forming small flocks.
The Mistle Thrush averages about 27 cm long, larger than the similar Song Thrush. The sexes are similar, with plain greyish brown backs and neatly round-spotted underparts. The breast has much less buff than the Song Thrush.
It is omnivorous, eating insects, worms and berries. A Mistle Thrush will defend a berry-bearing tree against other thrushes in winter. Mistletoe berries are amongst its diet.

Hi Razvan.
I like a charming winter subject. A cute bird among the tree branches which are covered by snow cap is looked amazingly. WB, colours and details are very good too. My best regards and TFS.

Beautiful photo with good composition, wonderful colours and good sharpness.
