Wildlife Photo: This Bird is a Genuine Turdus
It is found in eastern Asia and, is a member of the Turdidae family.
The scientific community named it Turdus pallidus.
These birds come from Russia, Korea and China, visiting Okinawa in winter.
Up until the last Century, people used to eat Pale Thrushes.
Well, they must have gave up eating them and switched to faster food.
The birds aren't listed as endangered or, even threatened as a species.
They are Listed as Least Concern (LC) on the IUCN Red List.
That's nice to know, in case that Kentucky Chicken place goes out of business.
The most informative reference, I could find was written by Nicole Bouglouan.
She tells you everything you'll ever need to know about these creatures.
For example, the sounds they make:
"Tuck-tuck" or "chuck-chuck when it calls.
When it flies, it says, "tzeee" a lot.
If you spook one, it makes a long, "seee" noise and a bunch of quacks, like a blackbird.
It also, sings, "Tuvee-tulee-tulee-tuvee" or, something like that.
