Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Rather stocky, boldly patterned thrush of highland pine-oak and fir forest. Endemic to western and central Mexico. Found singly or in flocks, often associating with other thrushes at fruiting trees and bushes. Despite its striking plumage, can be difficult to see as its plumage blends well in sun-dappled foliage. Usually rather quiet, and can sit still for long periods. Male has blackish hood and upperparts with bold white patterning on wings and tail. Female paler and more grayish in areas where male is black.
