Hi all,
as a resident of the UK who sees both species daily from my kitchen window I don't consider them to be even slightly confusable with each other?

Immature and female Blackbirds often confuse novice birders with their speckled breasts but Song Thrush is very much paler underneath, often almost white and should present no ID problems even with very basic literature to consult.

Regards, Andy.
