Hermit Thrush

    Related Articles


    The song of Hermit Thrush (Catharus guttatus) is an extraordinary sequence of phrases on varying pitches. Each phrase begins with a single whistle and closes with a jumble of brilliant, bubbly notes. On nesting territory in the northern forests, its song may often be heard with the songs of Gray-cheeked Thrush (Catharus minimus), an Olive-backed bird that lacks the Hermit’s rusty tail. This species prefers moist coniferous or mixed forests, other woodlands, and parks (during migration).
