American Mountain Thrush // Mirlo montañero

(Turdus plebejus plebejus)

San Gerardo de Dota

 

I almost missed this species because I convinced myself that it was a Clay-colored Thrush.

In fact this is the only photo I got for this specie.

I don't remember if I had more opportunities or not, but I only notice the difference latter at home in the boring process of selecting photos. Then I realize that here at this altitude the widespread Costa Rica National bird doesn't occurs.

So stupid...

The main difference for Clay-colored is the color of the beak.
