Even the stork in the sky Knows her seasons; And the turtledove and the swift and the thrush Observe the time of their migration; But My people do not know The ordinance of the LORD. (Jeremiah 8:7 NASB)

Sunday Inspiration – Thrushes

This week we get to see the Lord’s creation in the Turdidae – Thrushes Family. The Muscicapidae Family also has the Palm & Rock Thrushes. It is easy to see the characteristic similarity of these birds, even though they have differences in color, even in their feet and beaks.

(Yes, the American Robin is a Thrush.)

  1. This was so delightful, Lee. I get such a kick out of how so many of the names fit the description of the birds perfectly. That black-headed nightingale was a wild looking thing, wasn’t he? But my favorites are the mountain bluebird and the tristan thrush. However, in one of the pictures of the mountain bluebirds, there were some blue and some brown. I’d be willing to bet that the blue ones are the males, and the plain old brown ones are the females. That seems to be the norm for so much of the bird kingdom. The ladies get the short end of the stick when it comes to beauty. That’s one thing I’m going to have a talk with God about when I get up there.

    • Lady birds have to keep the Kid birds protected while Male bird gets to strut his stuff. :) He is also the one most likely to get captured or shot. I believe the Lord IS watching out for His Lady birds. The Lord is All Knowing.

    • Don’t recall seeing one, but then again, I’ve only been west a few times. Since blue is my favorite color, I’m partial to all “Blue” birds.
