Thrushes and Blackbirds – A Garden Duet

One of the joys of attracting birds to the garden is listening out for their individual songs. It can be easier than you think to identify the particular songs of regular visitors. Both the Thrush and the Blackbird are well known for their distinctive, melodious calls. The Thrush has a tinkling, bell like song, whereas the Blackbird can go from trill to almost melancholic in one breath.

Song Thrushes begin their dawn chorus in January, earlier in the year to most other birds. Their song is one of the loudest among garden birds and is made up of a series of phrases repeated three or four times. Some Song Thrushes have favourite phrases they return to again and again.

Unlike most birds who fall silent on cold, grey days, Mistle Thrushes, the Song Thrushes larger cousin, seem to take delight in singing their hearts out in the dullest weather. Their song is sung in minor key and with a slightly mournful lilt. In contrast, their call sounds a little like a football rattle. They will use this battle cry to guard a favourite berry bush along hedgerows and in gardens alike.

A Blackbird’s song has a confident, well-practiced sound. Blackbirds chirrup and twitter as if in conversation with whoever’s passing by. The Blackbird is good at mimicking too. It can “borrow” another bird’s call and weave it seamlessly into its own. Stories abound of blackbird’s mimicking a human whistle and causing all manner of mischief in the process. A Blackbird will often even pass it’s own particular song to it’s own chicks and on down the generations.

Attract Thrushes and Blackbirds to your garden with our specially formulated mixture. It’s packed with nutrient rich, tasty treats they wont be able to resist.
