Roehl's Thrush

Turdus roehli Reichenow, 1905

The Usambara Thrush or Roehl's Thrush (Turdus roehli) is a member of the thrush family in Africa. It has traditionally been considered a subspecies of the Olive Thrush (with which it is known to hybridize), but is increasingly treated as a separate species. This medium-sized bird has a length of about 24 cm. It has a wing length between 117 and 131 mm, a culmen length between 20 and 24 mm and a tarsus length between 30,0 and 34,5 mm. It can reach a mass of at least 86 g. It occurs in the Pare and Usambara mountains of north central Tanzania. Source: Wikipedia
