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!
