Turdidae

 

a family of birds of the order Passeriformes. As a rule, the tarsus is covered not by individual scales, but by a solid plate. The fledglings are speckled. The family Turdidae includes thrushes, wheatears, chats, sparrows, and robins. There are approximately 300 species. They are found all over the world except in Antarctica and New Zealand; there are 51 species in the USSR. They live under the most varied conditions—in the tundra, tropical forests, and high mountains. Their diet consists of insects, worms, mollusks, berries, and small fruits.

Al ser una especie omnivora, la riqueza de frutos en parques y otros alimentos de origen antropico, explicarian una poblacion estable con buen exito de cria (Luniak, Mulsow, & Walasz, 1990), un aumento del sedentarismo (Partecke & Gwinner, 2007), y una prolongada temporada reproductora (Partecke, Van't Hof, & Gwinner, 2004); aspectos que ocurren en otras especies de Turdidae (Mendes, Colino-Rabanal, & Peris, 2011b), e influirian en la adaptacion del T.
