Hi there, I have a question about song thrushes... I don't know these birds well at all since they are not to be found where I come from, but I have one in the new garden who's always coming and going in the pergola, bathing in the pond, breaking snails on the same stone, etc. Thing is, I never see it flying, well, occasionally, if it really must, and it seems to fly somewhat wobbly... more like springing in the air and somehow trying not to fall down again... is this normal, or is this particular bird hurt?
It seems to be going around its business well enough, but always on foot, hop hop hop. It's kinda funny, and a bit strange.
