In the above two photos, the orange belly is discernible
The Karoo thrush's habitat is riverine woodland, and they're common in gardens. They eat insects, worms and some fruit. When I photographed the thrush's above (there was a pair), they were hawking for late afternoon midges.

Looks a lovey bird JoReplyDelete

I loved seeing this new thrush for me!ReplyDelete
Nice looking bird - just a hint of colour.ReplyDelete
The gannets in my post with the flecked backs are 2 or 3 year old birds, which means that they are not 'fully adult'. As far as I know the adults are alike.
