Wood Thrush

Perhaps the most famous reference to the Wood Thrush is this one from the writings of Henry David Thoreau:

"The thrush alone declares the immortal wealth and vigor that is in the forest. ...Whenever a man hears it he is young, and Nature is in her spring; whenever he hears it, it is a new world and a free country, and the gates of heaven are not shut against him."
