Turdus Minimus: The Little Thrush.
In Shape and Colour it agrees with the Description of the European
Mavis, or Song Thrush, differing only in Bigness: this
weighing no more than one Ounce and a quarter. It never sings, having
only a single Note, like the Winter-Note of our Mavis. It
abides all the Year in Carolina. They are seldom seen, being
but few, and those abiding only in dark Recesses of the thickest
Woods and Swamps. Their Food is the Berries of Holly, Haws, &c.
Agrifolium Carolinense foliis dentatis baccis rubris: The Dahoon
This Holly usually grows erect, sixteen Feet high; the Branches
shooting straighter, and being of quicker Growth than the common
Kind. The Leaves are longer, of a brighter green, and more pliant;
not prickly, but serrated only. The Berries are red, growing in
large Clusters. This is a very uncommon Plant in Carolina,
I having never seen it but at Col. Bull's Plantation on Ashley
River, where it grows in a Bog.
