A member of the 'Thrush' family, strangely enough, and apart from the vagrants and rarities that turn up here occasionally from other countries, the largest of our two resident species that have Thrush in their name.
Song Thrush, at 20-22cm, and the Mistle Thrush, at 26-29cm.
A fine melodic singer too.
Whilst walking along a footpath at Llanfaifechan recently, that borders a woodland, I saw a different side to them though.
I guess most birds 'fight' at some stage in their life; be it over food, or a partner, and Robins, in particular, have been known to fight to the death.
This pair were doing a pretty good job of it when I saw them.
They would tumble, from a tree branch, fighting, and continue the fight on the ground.
As soon as one broke free, the other would chase him back up in the tree, and the process would continue.
Have a peaceful day.
