The Austral Thrush is the southernmost member of the genus Turdus. This species is commonly found on the ground and in trees at the edge of forests, gardens, and agricultural land. The Austral Thrush is frequently detected by its loud whistled song and screeching calls, typical for a large thrush. The Austral Thrush has a yellow bill and legs, a dark head and grayish back, and creamy-pale underparts.
