Wintering thrushes in Moscow


2020-01-20| Michael Nevski

It's well-known, that when there are a lot of berries in winter, thrushes can be wintering in these places. The most of them is fieldfares (Turdus pilaris), but in smaller numbers another species can be wintering. Annually in one of parks in Moscow eurasian blackbirds (Turdus merula) are watched, and this year they're going to winter in number of 2 till 5 males. But the most unusual winterer is redwing (Turdus iliacus). I haven't found anything about redwing wintering in the Internet, but Anna Golubeva sais that she had taken photos of redwing in winter 2013. In 2020 one bird was watched twice in one plce, with an interval of 1 week (01.12 and 01.19).

Спасибо, Михаил. Дрозды - очень интересная и приятная группа. У нас на юге Казахстана зимой они тоже являются объектом особого внимания. Очень интересно высматривать среди чернозобых какие-нибудь редкие экземпляры, того же белобровика, или краснозобого. Черный, деряба - обычные местные птицы, рябинник бывает массово, а бывает, что и не встретишь.
