Turdus Viscivorus Plumbeus: The red-leg'd Thrush.
Weighs two ounces and an half; has a dusky black Bill: The inside
of the Mouth is more red than usual: The Iris of the Eye red, with
a circle of the same colour encompassing it: The Throat black: All
the rest of the Body of a dusky blue, except that the interior Vanes
of the large wing-feathers are black, as is the Tail when closed;
but when spread, the outermost Feathers appear to have their Ends
white, and are gradually shorter than the two middlemost: The Legs
and Feet are red.
The Hen differs from the Cock no otherwise than in being about
a third part less. In the Gizzard of one were the Berries of the
Tree described below. In its Singing, Gestures, &c. this Bird much
resembles other Thrushes. I saw many of them on the Islands of Andros
