A happy mistle thrush with wriggly worm trapped in beak.

Lovely photo Elaine.
No Jo, Browning is describing a Song Thrush which repeats its notes.
Cecil Day Lewis writes about the Mistle Thrush here, using its country name:
As storm-cocks sing,
Flinging their natural answer in the wind's teeth,
And care not if it is waste of breath
Or birth-carol of spring
is that the same bird as in R Browning's poem?
That 's the wise thrush; he sings each song twice over,
Lest you should think he never could recapture
The first fine careless rapture!
