The wood thrush is a medium-sized thrush, with brown upperparts with mottled brown and white underparts. The male and female are similar in appearance.
The song of the male is often cited as being the most beautiful in North America.
The wood thrush is an omnivore, and feeds on soil invertebrates and larvae, but will also eat fruits. In the summer, it feeds on insects continuously in order to meet daily metabolic needs. It is solitary but sometimes forms mixed-species flocks.
