Creamy-bellied Thrush Turdus amaurochalinus


The Creamy-bellied Thrush occurs in cerrado and open forest from Central Brazil west to Peru and south to Argentina.  Creamy-belleid Thrushes are olive-brown above, with a yellowish bill, black lores, a brown-streaked white throat and buffy underparts that fade to creamy white on the belly.  The Creamy-bellied Thrush is primarily arboreal, but will also forage for insects in grassy areas on the ground near cover.  These thrushes are migratory, with a majority of the population migrating north during the austral winter.
