|Wood Thrush Hylocichla mustelina
|Guatemala and Honduras
The Wood Thrush breeds in the eastern half of Canada and the United States and migrates during the winter to eastern Mexico and Central America. See the distribution map at Birdlife International. It is treated as Near Threatened because of its rapid decline in recent years brought about by loss of habitat.
|It breeds in deciduous and mixed forest where there is a fairly open forest floor with leaf litter in which it can hunt for invertebrates in
the soil. In wintering quarters the habitat is similar but sometimes includes banana and cacao plantations. Apart from invertebrates it also feeds on fruits and berries as can be
seen in photos 1 and 2.
