The Olive Thrush (Turdus olivaceus) is, in its range, one of the most common members of the thrush family (Turdidae). It occurs in east African highlands from Eritrea and Ethiopia in north to the Cape of Good Hope in south. It is a bird of forest and woodland, but has – locally – adapted to parks and large gardens in suburban areas. The male’s song is a mix of fluted, whistled and trilled phrases, which varies geographically. It occasionally mimics other birds.
