Tickell's Thrush

Tickell's Thrush

Tickell's Thrush (Turdus unicolor) is a passerine bird in the thrush family Turdidae. It is common in open forest in the Himalaya, and migrates seasonally into peninsular India. Males of this small thrush have uniform blue-grey upperparts, and a whitish belly and vent. Females and young birds have browner upperparts. Populations move further south in India in winter. Tickell's Thrushes are omnivorous, eating a wide range of insects, earthworms and berries. They nest in bushes or similar. They do not form flocks.
