Chestnut-backed Thrush

Chestnut-backed thrushes are restricted to Timor, Lombok and the Lesser Sunda islands in Indonesia; unfortunately, they are now believed to be extinct on some of these islands. Their numbers are declining due to habitat loss and capture for the pet bird trade.

They inhabit forests where they spend much of the time foraging on the ground for food, such as insects, spiders and worms. Our pair spend a lot of time searching for earthworms and mealworms we hide around their aviary.
