  • © Eduardo Carrión Letort

The Maranon Thrush is a range-restricted Turdus of the Maranon Valley of Peru and adjacent Ecuador. Brown above with darker feather edging imparting a scaled appearance, white below with dark brown feather tips, with a dull olive bill, the species is rather distinctive visually (though other thrushes show underparts spotting as juveniles). The Maranon Thrush is known primarily from arid scrub and open woodland between 200 and 2000 meters in elevation.
