Seems to me your bird was sick from something.
It happens often to birds naturally through eating bad food to contacting or
drinking poor water. That's natural. But in our ever expanding human technology,
we also poison the environment with lawn sprays etc, and these birds will eat
the poisoned prey we have sprayed for. I saw this often when I monitored my 200
Bluebird boxes back when. Inevitably, somewhere someone sprayed and the parent
Bluebirds found the dead bugs and ate them or fed them to their young, with
sickness or death as a result.
You might just have saved that poor thrush from a prolonged painful death.
