Thrushes were large speckled brown birds with a special fondness for snails, whose shells they remove by breaking them against stones. A thrush of Erebor was instrumental in the downfall of Smaug.

Men of Lake-town and Dale could understand the language of the Thrushes, and some Thrushes could understand the common tongue.
