  • Varied thrushes are song birds.
  • You can often hear them long before they are seen.
  • Varied thrushes forage on the ground.

  • Females incubate the eggs, but both parents help feed the chicks.

We enjoyed listening to these gorgeous song birds while we walked the woods. We loved their bright orange coloration. They are often compared to robins, the plump song birds we have near HQs. We love robins, but these varied thrush are much brighter!
