February 25, 2017 – Black-breasted Thrush (Turdus dissimilis)
These thrushes are found in parts of South and Southeast Asia. They eat insects, mollusks, and berries, foraging mostly on the ground and sometimes in trees. During the breeding season, which varies in different parts of their range, they build sturdy cup nests from green moss and fibers, usually in trees or shrubs, but sometimes on the ground. They were once grouped with the Grey-backed Thrush as a single species and the two may form a superspecies along with the Tickell’s Thrush.
