Mountain Thrush

Turdus abyssinicus Gmelin, JF, 1789

The Abyssinian Thrush or African Mountain Thrush (Turdus abyssinicus) is a passerine bird in the Turdidae family. It has recently been split from the Olive Thrush (Turdus olivaceus) on genetic differences. Their ranges do not overlap. The southern and northern populations may be distinct species. The Abyssinian Thrush is found in eastern Africa from Eritrea in the north to Mozambique in the south. Source: Wikipedia
