[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This Mistle Thrush visits most days but catching him is more of a challenge, he's always on the move.

Mistle Thrush's are not so well known as the Song Thrush, although they are not rare, they prefer farmland and parks.

They feed on the ground. Its bigger than a blackbird, long tailed, smallish round-head. Moves with bounding hops on the ground.

Flight high on long, pointed wings. Noisy aggressive, often on berries.

Their 4 eggs hatch after 14 days and young fly in 14-16 days.
