Catharus (nightingale-thrushes)

Wikipedia Abstract

Catharus is a genus of birds in the thrush family Turdidae. It contains the small, mostly insectivorous or omnivorous migrant thrushes of North America and the nightingale-thrushes of Central and South America. Its closest relative is the wood thrush of the monotypic genus Hylocichla, which is sometimes merged into Catharus. These are mainly forest birds with large eyes, straight slim bills and fluty voices.
