Mistle Thrush

Mistle Thrush (aka Storm Thrush or Stormcock. Latin: Turdus viscivorus). 1. A songbird with gray-feathered wings and a black and white spotted breast. Builds small round nests that can hold a large number of eggs. Though not usually aggressive, it is a ferocious protector of home and offspring and is known to battle birds of prey. Unlike other birds, which fall silent as storms approach, the mistle thrush has a peculiar habit of singing. Its solitary call can be heard through the worst of gales as it faces the fury and sings boldly.

**I want to be like this bird.**
