Kōrero: Introduced land birds

Song thrush feeding chicks

Song thrushes are common in all parts of New Zealand, except native bush. They lay their eggs in the spring and often raise up to three broods a season, but rarely in the same nest. The young nestlings are fed by both the male and female, and usually fledge after 13–15 days.
