Title
DIET AND PREPARATION FOR SPRING MIGRATION IN
CAPTIVE HERMIT THRUSHES (CATHARUS GUTTATUS)

Author(s): JENNIFER A. LONG AND PHILIP C. STOUFFER
Abstract: Seasonal changes in food choice by migratory birds often reflect changes in relative food abundance and increased energetic demand. Hermit Thrushes (Catharus guttatus) in southeastern Louisiana are highly frugivorous during winter but forage exclusiv..[more]..

Title
SINGING BEHAVIOR OF THE HERMIT THRUSH
Author(s): JAMES W. RIVERS and DONALD E. KROODSMA
Abstract: Despite the Hermit Thrush’s wide distribution and exceptional singing ability, its vocal behavior is poorly known. In recorded samples from Arizona and New England, we
show that males have repertoires of 6 to 12 discrete song types. Those types can ..[more]..
