Am I Invisible Yet? - Juvenile Song Thrush - NZ by 


This beautiful juvenile Song Thrush with large black eyes and speckled chest to me is a beautiful bird, just like its beautiful song. This little fellow appears to be a resident in our garden “Tranquillity”. Nature provides us with a free-to-view window into the world of her beautiful creatures and landscapes every day, but only if we all take a moment to pause our busy day to day lives and take a look. After a long day re-modeling my garden and preparing it for the summer to come it is always wonderful to come in to a warm cozy home with the fire going. I always feel rejuvenated and energized after a long hard day in the garden, not only in body but in spirit, mind and soul; Birds are a passion for me, I spend hours photographing them and just watching them. There is so much to learn from our little feathered creatures.
The song Thrush introduced from Europe between 1862- 78 and now found throughout the mainland and offshore islands of New Zealand in gardens, orchards, parks, exotic plantations, scrub, hedgerows and regenerating native forest. The upperparts are warm brown, buff-white below, with breast boldly spotted dark brown. The bill is yellowish brown with yellow gape, and the legs are pinkish brown. The male song is a loud string of repeated clear-cut musical phrases, each separated by a brief pause: ‘chitty-choo, chitty-choo, co-eee, co-eee….’ The alarm note is a rapidly repeated ‘chuk’ or ‘chip’ and the flight call is a thin high-pitched ‘seep’. The Song Thrush feeds mostly on the ground, hopping and running then remaining motionless. They eat invertebrates such a snails ( hammered open on a regular ‘anvil’), insects, worms, amphipods, millipedes and spiders and a variety of fruits from native and introduced shrubs and weeds.

My fascination with birds began as a child and almost 50 years down the track my love for our feathered friends has not diminished. Once we moved to Tranquillity (our little country retreat) my passion for birds, all nature and wildlife became a digital reality through the lens of my camera.
