Wood Thrush Info

Guest Author - Lisa Shea

The wood thrush is the state bird of Washington DC, home of the White House. A thrush is the same family as the American Robin. The wood thrush has the same body shape, but is slightly smaller. Its back is brown while its breast is white with black specks.

Wood thrushes can be found all over the eastern US but are most common in the DC area and in neighboring states. It has been in decline in recent years, in part due to humans moving into its wooded territories. Cowbirds are also known to lay eggs in wood thrush nests, pushing out the native chicks to insert their own babies.

Wood thrushes eat mostly bugs and spiders. They lay a clutch of 2-4 eggs. They are well known for their melodious songs in the mornings and evenings.
