Oh my goodness the wood thrush is the cutest and I love them. Do yourself a favor and listen to their gorgeous song online (link below).
Conservation status according to audubon.org:
“Numbers have declined seriously in recent decades. Cowbirds lay many eggs in their nests, so the thrushes often raise mainly cowbirds, with few young of their own. As forests are cut into smaller fragments, it apparently becomes easier for cowbirds to penetrate these small woodlots and find more of the thrush nests. The Wood Thrush is probably also losing wintering habitat in the tropics.”
