What is the meaning of the red sentence in this conversation?
Mr. 'N' nodded.
"It was a blackbird singin'," he said.
"Blackbirds," answered Mr. 'T', "I prefer them to thrushes myself; more body in the note." And he looked at Mr. 'N' in an almost friendly way.
A thrush and a blackbird are two different birds. The speaker prefers the blackbird, because he finds the song of the blackbird more pleasing than the song of the thrush.
All best wishes,
