I'm sorting through my Kazakhstan mountain photos. I found this video of a mistle thrush. I have such a love for mistle thrushes. I'm not sure why, I think because I saw one in a field guide years ago and it tripped my trigger that there was a large grayish robin out there with a great name like "Mistle Thrush."

This was a bird in the Kazakhstan mountains. I like this video because I frequently tell people in bird programs that you can always tell a bird is about to take off because they poop right before they fly (to lighten the load). This mistle thrush does it perfectly.
