The Song Thrush is closely related to the Blackbird, and like the Blackbird, was introduced to New Zealand because it reminded early settlers of home.
They are a light brown in colour with a speckled light buff underside. Slightly smaller than a Blackbird, with a more upright stance.
They can be found throughout Cornwall Park. They generally occupy parks, gardens, scrublands and forested areas.
They eat insects mainly spiders, worms and snails. They also have been known to eat some fruits.
The Song Thrush can be heard singing from April till December, they have a continuous rapid song. Their alarm call is a 'chook-chook' that gets faster as the perceived threat increase.
