    Default Bird ID - Thrush in Versailles, France

    Hi All:

    I took this photo several summers ago in Versailles, France. There are two thrushes in the photo, one in the foreground and one a bit further back in the shadows. Any thoughts on what they are?

    I'm going through some old slides and hoping to add a few species to my list!

    Thanks for your help and I apologize in advance for the poor photo quality.

    Blimey Joni, images on these forums are getting more and more ridiculously difficult to see. I have no way of blowing this tiny portrait of a bird any larger than it is but I suspect that the bird is a SONG THRUSH from what I can see

    Sorry for the difficulty. I tried to blow it up as much as I could without degrading quality even further. This is actually the best photo I have; I have several other ones I am thinking of posting but they are far worse quality! I can hear you all groaning all the way across the pond at me but then again, what would be the sport in it if it were easy?

    Ditto to Song Thrush and Blackbird

    If you click on the thumbnail, and then click again on the dark-bordered pic that comes up, you get a much larger (if blurry!!) pic.
