Bird ID please ....


Question

Hi all,

Can anyone identify this bird chick please ... I think it's a thrush but Mistle Thrush or Song Thrush ? It was taken in Hungary but it would seem both are common there !

Thanks in advance !

Its difficult to tell from the picture but the mistle thrush is slightly larger and has slightly greyer plumage and pale spots on its belly, where as the song thrush has streaks

 

Thank you Sue !

It's very difficult to tell as the fledgling is so young and I can't do a side by side size comparison of the Mistle and Song Thrush ... there does appear to be more streaks than spots and the garden is lined with Christmas trees which the Mistle Thrush apparently inhabits ... but I don't want to get the identification wrong !
