The Hermit Thrush has a large range, estimated globally at 8,400,000 square kilometers. Native to North America, Honduras, Guatemala, Saint Pierre and Miquelon, and Turks and Caicos Islands, but also spotted throughout Europe, this bird prefers forest ecosystems. The global population of this bird is estimated at 56,000,000 individuals and does not show signs of decline that would necessitate inclusion on the IUCN Red List. For this reason, the current evaluation status of the Hermit Thrush is Least Concern. More

The Hermit thrushes, which had seemed to be ubiquitous just a few short minutes ago, are now silent and invisible. I may not see one all day because their brown plumage blends into the dead leaves on the forest floor where they forage for hidden insects, or as they pluck berries from a dense grove of evergreen holly trees.

"The song of the Hermit Thrush is the grand climax of all bird music; it is unquestionably so far removed from all the rest of the wild-wood singers' accomplishments that vaunted comparisons are invidious and wholly out of place." - F. Schuyler Mathews, Field Book of Wild Birds and their Music. More

They can be distinguished from the similar Swainson's Thrush and Grey-cheeked Thrush by their distinctive reddish rump and tail. They also possess a distinct light/white eye-ring. Hermit Thrushes are known for their beautiful song. Habitat: Nearly any kind of wooded habitat during migration and in the winter. More

The flight of the Hermit Thrush is performed low over the ground, and in a gliding manner, as the bird shifts from one place to another at a short distance. In this respect, it differs greatly from its relative, my great favourite, the Wood Thrush, the flight of which is more protracted, and is performed at a greater elevation. More

Among the forest thrushes, the Hermit Thrush is the one species that shows stable or even increasing population trends throughout its large range. It is seemingly tolerant of various disturbances, but in many areas it is a species associated with large and mature forests. Why this species is successful while other closely related thrushes are declining is one of the mysteries we are trying to understand through the BFL study. More

Named for its shy, retiring ways, the hermit thrush can be told from the other brownish thrushes by its gray-brown back and contrasting rufous tail. Hermits are found in mixed woodlands all across North America, and, unlike closely related thrushes, can often be found here, during winter. If you encounter a hermit thrush in the woods, watch for it to fly to a convenient perch from which it will watch you, scolding with a soft tschupp. More

Swainson's and Hermit Thrushes run a high risk of predation by cats and collision with windows. Consequently, both species are brought frequently to the Museum, and we have a large collection of each. I preserve specimens of both species, especially the Hermit, as often as possible because of the complex variation in each. These specimens also help document the birds' migration schedules, arrival and departure dates, when sight records of these similar species are not always reliable. More

Hermit Thrushes have the habit of quickly raising and then slowly lowering their tails upon landing; this behavior is often accompanied by a tchup call. Wing-flicking or "twinkling" is the Hermit Thrush's habit of repeatedly and very rapidly extending its wings out from the body and immediately returning them to rest. The Hermit Thrush is the only one of the brown-backed thrushes that winters in North America. The Veery (Catharus fuscescens), Gray-cheeked Thrush (C. minimus), Bicknell's Thrush (C. More

The other similar thrushes (Veery, Swainson's, Gray-cheeked and Wood Thrushes) completely withdraw from North America during the winter season. The Hermit Thrush is perhaps best known for its exquisite song of one clear, flute-like note followed by a series of etherial, bell-like ascending and descending tones. The Hermit Thrush is from 6.5 to 7. More
