Redwing – 1894

Turdus iliacus – A common winter visitor.

The little flock that arrives at some favourite locality in the autumn does not stray far from it unless exceptionally severe weather sets in, and on the approach of spring the birds assemble in the nearest tall trees, and sing in concert a low sweet song, the notes of which are very pleasing to anyone standing below. The Redwings vary greatly in their numbers, some seasons being abundant, at others few are seen.
