Turdus fuscater female -juvenile- (Great Thrush/mirla)

The common name of this species is well-deserved: The Great Thrush is the largest member of this cosmopolitan genus, with some subspecies reaching 175 g, twice the weight of the average species of Turdus thrush. The Great Thrush is often the most common species in humid Andean habitats, above 2000 m from Venezuela south to western Bolivia.
