Help w/ ID, pics of dead bird in fence. (kind of disturbing)

12 years ago

Took these pics a while back, was jogging at the neighborhood church & noticed something in the fence, took a closer look and saw it was a dead bird. Closest match I found is Wood Thrush, but I've never seen or even heard a wood thrush around here (baton rouge, la) Is this a Wood Thrush? And if not, can someone Id it for me? Also, Is it common for birds to get stuck in this type of fence? And any ideas as to how this bird got stuck? Does it look like he flew right into the fence without seeing it? Or do they sometimes get stuck while climbing around/through this type of fence? Thanks

Here is a link that might be useful: More photos of the bird
