Mistle thrush

Turdus viscivorus


Bigger Thrush, over 25 cm in length, typical thrush in shape, with a more elongated silhouette and longer tail. Brown above, white underwing, and white to white-yellowish underside, rounded black spots on breast and belly and irregular stripes on neck.


Seen hiding in a canopy of wooded (deciduous mixed woods) protected area around Voltaire's castle/villa (Château de Voltaire à Ferney); rural area of Geneva suburbs; Geneva lake Valley.


Not great quality of photos and I apologize; but it was the best I could get in that forest on that (so cloudy it looked like dusk) day. I had to add plenty of light to shots to see something. Beside this thrush, I also saw many tits (great and blue mainly); something that looked like a wren, and a Great Spotted Woodpecker - the photos of the later one are even worse than these...
