Ring Ousel

Ring-Ousel (Turdns torquatus), a well-known bird of the Thrush family, rather larger than a blackbird, from which it differs in its black bill and its white gorget. It is a native of Western Europe, visiting Britain in the spring, remaining to breed, and generally leaving in the autumn. The nest is usually made in heathy banks, and two broods are sometimes reared. It feeds on insects, worms, molluscs, berries, and fruit.
