WOOD THRUSH

Like its close relatives, the Hermit and Swainson’s Thrushes, this spot-breasted thrush nests near the forest floor. As a result, it’s frequently in danger of predation, especially by an increasing number of free-roaming and feral cats.

Non-native predators such as pet cats, as well as naturally occurring predators like jays, crows, and raccoons, more easily find the birds and their nests today. The reason: habitat fragmentation that opens the way into the forest.
