White-throated Thrush (Turdus assimilis), Madera Canyon, Pima County

This White-throated Thrush was found and photographed by Linda Grant on 09 January 2019 and also photographed by Andrew Core and Chris McCreedy on the same date.

If accepted by the ABC would be a first state record. This species is a regular mid to high elevation breeder in Sonora north to the Yécora area and an altitudinal migrant with the species regularly moving to lower elevations in search of food in winter.

This thrush is uniformly  a cold brown with a white throat that is striped in dark brown. This individual also shows a thin yellow eye ring. Though thrushes are often kept in captivity, this species is often shy and this individual appears typical of the subspecies found in northwest Mexico.
