Thrush Songs: An Interactive Game

In this interactive game, learners listen to the songs of four different thrushes and then try to match each bird with its song. Many people consider thrushes the most beautiful-sounding songbirds in North America. Birders describe their songs as “airy,” “flute-like” and “haunting.” Each species of thrush has a distinctive pattern to its song. This sound activity requires speakers or headphones.
