About the size of a robin, Wood Thrushes are larger than the other spring migrant thrushes (Veery and Swainson's). Cinnamon-brown above with white breast and prominent spots. Males and females look alike. The song is a beautiful flute-like phrase of 3 to 5 different sad, lonesome, but beautiful note notes. Can be heard in a shady hollow, in the evening, or before a storm. They are quite common at ROLF.
