Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Fairly large thrush found in the Andean subtropical zone from around 1,500–2,800 m. Fairly common. Well-named: male is entirely glossy black with orange bill, legs, and eyering. Female is warm medium brown with dull yellowish bill, legs, and eyering. Usually found in cloud forest or at edges and clearings. Tends to stay hidden, but males sometimes perch up to sing at dawn and dusk. Not likely to be seen brazenly hopping around in the open like Great Thrush. Listen for distinctive song: a fast jumble of notes that rises at the end, repeated endlessly.
