Pale Thrush in the Park – Chiba, Japan

Pale Thrush in the Park – Chiba, Japan

Chiba is the capital city of Chiba Prefecture, Japan. It sits about 40 kilometres east of the centre of Tokyo on Tokyo Bay.

I visited Aoba-no-mori park in Chiba city and found a Pale Thrush. It seems this is a migratory bird, so we can see them only in winter.

The pale thrush is a passerine bird of the eastern Palearctic belonging to the genus Turdus in the thrush family Turdidae.

It is closely related to the eye-browed thrush and grey-backed thrush. It is 23 cm long. The feet are pale pinkish-brown and the bill is grey above and yellow below.
