|The Swedish Taltrast forages for worms in Örebro, Sweden. Photo taken 5/15/14 by J.J. Meyer|
The photo above was taken in the beautiful Örebro city garden near the Wadköping open-air museum located along the bank of the River Svartån. The Taltrast hopped along the grass searching for worms and insects, which it fed to its young that hid in the nearby brush.
The Taltrast or Song Thrush, breeds across much of Eurasia. It has brown upperparts and black-spotted cream or buff underparts. It has three recognized subspecies.
