General Information

The St. Lucia forest thrush (Cichlhermina lherminieri sanctaeluciae) (hereafter referred to as ``thrush'') is a subspecies of the forest thrush (C. lherminieri) in the family Turdidae. It is a medium-sized bird, approximately 10 inches (in) (25 to 27 centimeters (cm)) in length (BLI 2000). This subspecies has all dark upperparts, is brownish below with white spots on the breast, flanks and upper belly, and white lower belly. It has yellow legs and bill, and bare skin around the eye (BLI 2000). The St. Lucia forest thrush occupies mid- and high-altitude primary and secondary moist forest habitat (Keith 1997, p. 105). The thrush feeds on insects and berries from ground level to the forest canopy (del Hoyo et al. 2005, p. 681; Raffaelle 1998, p. 381). It previously gathered in large numbers in autumn to feed on berries (del Hoyo et al. 2005, p. 681). The thrush breeds in April and May and builds a cup-shaped nest placed not far above the ground in a bush or tree (del Hoyo et al. 2005, p. 681; Raffaelle 1998, p. 381). Clutch size ranges from two to three eggs, and the eggs are blue-green in color (del Hoyo et al. 2005, p. 681).
