A CHO­RUS OF BROWN THRUSHES

Birds & Blooms - - Meet The Thrushes - a rich, deep flut­ing whis­tle (ee-oh-lay). breezy whis­tles that spi­ral down (veeyurr, veeyurr, veeyurr). whis­tled phrases with a nasal tone (veeyer, vidi veer, de veer).

Ac­com­plished singers, thrushes de­liver some of the most beau­ti­ful bird songs in North Amer­ica.

WOOD THRUSH: HER­MIT THRUSH:

one long, clear note and then a short, quick war­bling phrase.

SWAIN­SON’S THRUSH:

a short, low note fol­lowed by whis­tled phrases; at the end a higher note.

VEERY: GRAY-CHEEKED THRUSH: BICK­NELL’S THRUSH:

like the gray-cheeked thrush but thin­ner; ends on a higher note.
