Thrushes

Maine's native thrush species are diurnal (active during the day). Their singing activity, however, peaks during dawn and dusk. This means evening is an excellent time to listen for their characteristic ethereal songs.  

 

Learning the differences between these birds' songs is key to making correct identification, especially as summer progresses and seeing these birds becomes more difficult. For more information on Maine's thrush species, click on the bios below.
