INTERESTING FACTS

The Swainson's Thrush is the only woodland thrush whose song goes up in pitch.
It was named after William Swainson, an English ornithologist, and is also called the Olive-backed Thrush.
This species may be displaced by the Hermit Thrush where their ranges overlap. Possibly, the latter species adapts more readily to human encroachment upon its habitat.
A group of thrushes are collectively known as a "hermitage" and a "mutation" of thrushes.
