Singing in the garden

We continue to experience very mild temperatures here. Last evening I became aware of a solitary bird singing and it was not a Tui. Again this morning, I could hear the same song.

I discovered that it was a Song Thrush. I checked my book about Birds in NZ and learnt that Thrushes can breed from June to January and raise more than one clutch of eggs.

I wonder whether the birds are feeling confused with our very mild late autumn and with plenty of rain and warmth there is plenty of food around for the birds, so maybe the Thrush was calling for a mate a little earlier than usual.

The Thrush was a very welcome visitor.

    I also heard a lot of thrushes singing over the weekend. They may well be trying to fit in another breeding season.

      I hope this lovely warm weather is not going to upset too many of the plants and birds…..There does seem to be confusion about in the garden.
