swainson's thrush on nest

Catharuc ustulatus


small brownish thrush with haunting "upward spiral" song Incubation by the female alone, lasts approximately 12–13 days. Incubation begins after the third egg is laid. They are brooded by the female for the first few days. The nestling’s eyes open at 2–3 days, the feather plumes erupt from the sheaths at 7–10 days, and the young leave the nest at 10–12 days.
