First shama thrush chick of the 2011 season

Only one chick hatched and left the nest yesterday.  All other eggs are non-fertile.  This one looks like a male to me.  Maybe better luck on the next clutch (fingers crossed).


Update 05/16/11: Both long tail pair and their children pair had some eggs hatched on Sunday 05/15/11.  Not sure how many eggs hatched but I'm sure there are at least one in each nest.

  1. Hi, I use to keep and breed Shama Thrushes 40 Years ago in Germany. I kept them in a 100 sqm well planted Aviary and the use to breed easily in half open Nest Boxes.I had 3 to 4 Chicks per clutch and was feeding them mainly with Meal Worms and other small Insects with I could find in the Area. I also used manufactured Softbill Food.
    Congratulations to your Success.
    I wish we would not have these very tide Import regulation here in Australia so I could keep this beautiful Song Bird again.
