The Mistle Thrush (Turdus viscivorus) is a member of the thrush family Turdidae. It is found in open woods and cultivated land over all of Europe and much of Asia. Many northern birds move south during the winter, with migrating birds sometimes forming small flocks. The Mistle Thrush averages about 27 cm long, larger than the similar Song Thrush. The sexes are similar, with plain greyish brown backs and neatly round-spotted underparts. More

Add to my LibraryShare Mistle Thrush was formed in the Boston area in 1993 by Valerie Forgione (vocals, guitar, theremin), Scott Patalano (guitar), Todd Demma (drums), Ruben Layman (bass) and Brad Rigney (guitar). They named themselves after a bird that eats mistletoe berries, supposedly because of its combination of a sweet voice with a diet that would be poisonous to most animals. Mistle Thrush released their fist EP Agus Amarach in 1994. More
