Gray's thrush

It ranges from South Texas to northern Colombia; west and north of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec. It is limited to the Atlantic slope, except for a population around Oaxaca City that probably originates from escaped cagebirds.

The Gray's thrush is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

Nightingale-Thrush, Gray's Thrush, Orange-bellied Myio- borus, Mexican Bananaquit, and Cherrie's Tanager. It is instructive to compare, as the Moreaus (1940), ollowing Stresemann, have done, the incubation and nestling periods of the same species. On the whole, my results are in accord with theirs. In general, as they point out, the nestling periods of small altricial birds-except hole-nesters and long-winged species like swallows and swifts-are of about the same length as their incubation periods.

Whether a Gray's thrush will make its life in that polyglot forest among that little multitude of Japanese birds, Japanese animals, is not known to me. What birds will nest in the farm sheds of the Dusty Miller? At last I went into my house and waited in the darkness until the wary bird came back to the eggs. More
