In Esperanto, the European robin is called la Eŭropa ruĝgorĝulo.

Not to be confused with the American robin, which is called la migra turdo in Esperanto

Hm, the Esperanto translation of thrush as turdo is one of the best arguments I have seen for extending the Esperanto alphabet to include a dental fricative "th" sound! I'll never be able to look at a thrush the same way again!

Esperanto turdo is from the scientific name Turdus, which in turn comes from the Latin word turdus meaning "thrush".

Adding dental fricatives to Esperanto won't change the Latin word for "thrush" (you're over 2000 years too late to make any changes to Latin!).
