Brownish olive to rather russet brown above with buffy brown cheeks and a usually prominent buffy eye-ring and supraloral area; white below, throat and chest tinged buffy and lightly spotted with dusky.

Habits and Behavior

Like other migrant thrushes, usually keeps to rather dense cover and shy, so not visible in larger numbers.
