Clay-Colored Thrush

Turdus grayi

Formerly called the Clay-Colored Robin, this bird’s historic range has been eastern Mexico and south through Central America into northern South America. In recent years it has expanded its range into southern Texas. The Clay-Colored Thrush is resident throughout its range (it does not migrate). Folks in Costa Rica have made this bird their national symbol, even though there are many more colorful birds in that country. For them, it is a confiding and much loved yard bird.
