Word: дрозд,
Near etymology: род. п. дрозда́, укр. дрíзд, род. п. дрозда́, ср.-болг. дрозгъ, болг. дрозд, сербохорв. дро̏зд, дро̀зда, словен. drȏzg, чеш., слвц. drozd, польск. drozd, в.-луж. drózn, н.-луж. drozn.
Further etymology: Родственно др.-прусск. tresde ж., лит. strãzdas, лтш. strazds, др.-исл. þrǫstr, шв. trast, нем. Drossel "дрозд", ср.-ирл. truid "скворец" (из *trozdi-), лат. turdus. И.-е. *trozdos подверглось в слав. ассимиляции: drozdъ;, см. Сольмсен, KZ 37, 579; IF 13, 138; Бернекер 1, 227 и сл.; Траутман, BSW 327; М. -- Э. З, 1083; 4, 231 и сл.; Шпехт 49; Суолахти, Vogeln. 52 и сл. Невероятно предположение Суолахти (там же, в нерешительной форме) о заимствовании из герм. Сомнительна связь с греч. στρουθός "воробей"; см. Мейе, Et. 226; Гофман, Gr. Wb. 341. По мнению Булаховского (ОЛЯ 7, 112), это название ономатопоэтического происхождения, потому что крик дрозда напоминает дррти. Ср. словен. drskáč "желтоносый дрозд".
