The song thrush will be helped by the increase in scrub and hedgerow habitats.
However, after the blackbirds had dispersed survival improved, whilst song thrush numbers continued to decline markedly.
The notes of the blackbird are rich and full, but monotonous as compared with those of the song-thrush.
Thrushes have not been widely introduced, but the song-thrush and blackbird (Turdus musicus and Merula merula) are common in New Zealand; attempts were made, but unsuccessfully, to establish the latter in the United States.
Where and when can I see a song thrush?
