Thrush-like Wren

With a total length of approximately 20 cm , it is among the largest species of wrens. The head and mantle are brownish-gray. The wings and upper tail are dull brown with dense blackish barring. The whitish underparts are heavily spotted with dusky, except on the throat. It typically shows a distinctive whitish eye-brow and the relatively long tail is commonly held cocked. The slightly decurved bill is relatively long, and, for a wren, thick. The irides are dull amber, maroon or brown.

The Thrush-like Wren is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

The Thrush-like Wren (Campylorhynchus turdinus) is a South American species of bird in the Troglodytidae family, the wrens. As suggested by its common and scientific name, its shape and color are vaguely reminiscent of that of a thrush, although the general impression it gives in life is very different and not at all "thrush-like".

The Thrush-like Wren inhabits three main regions; each with its own subspecies. C. turdinus hypostictus is found in the southern and western Amazon Rainforest in south-eastern Colombia, eastern Ecuador, eastern Peru, northern Bolivia and Amazonian Brazil south of the Amazon River. The paler, greyer and much more uniform C. t. unicolor is found in the drier and more open wooded habitats in the Pantanal of Brazil, eastern Bolivia, Paraguay and far northern Argentina (where range is expanding). The nominate subspecies, C. t. More
