Until 2010, the Clay-colored Thrush was called the Clay-colored Robin. Its range is from South Texas, where it is expanding its territory down to South America.

The Clay-colored Thrush has a distinctive song. The song, rather low-pitched and with a slow steady tempo, consists of many slurred musical phrases which are often repeated irregularly. The tock flight call is like the American Robin's but harsher. To listen, go here: http://www.xeno-canto.org/sounds/upl...QFL/52b1_a.mp3

The Crested Caracara, National Bird of Mexico

Caracara cheriway

The Crested Caracara, the National bird of Mexico, ranges from the Southern United States, throughout Mexico and Cenral America all the way down to northern South America.

Quote:
Diet, Feeding Habits, and Breeding
Caracaras eat just about anything they can find. They will scavenge carrion, or hunt on their own, preying upon rodents, lizards, snakes, frogs, fish, crabs, grasshoppers, and even other birds. They are very aggressive thieves as well, and readily steal prey from others of their species, or other birds, such as pelicans. Caracaras build nests of sticks (as do most other birds of prey), in the tops of cacti, palms, or other trees, and lay two or three eggs in them.
Birds of legend, caracaras were sacred to some pre-Columbian civilizations, such as the Aztec. Depictions of these birds are found in some of the ancient books of the Aztec, and some of their deities had characteristics of them. Mexico is the only country in which the bird is a national symbol.

A few years back, I got to go to beautiful Belize on a Carribean vacation and saw something I'll never forget--wild tropical kingbirds flying everywhere on the river we took to visit the national zoo of Belize. Their wings looked like angel wings. They were so lovely they just took my breath away.

Greater Rheas - Rhea americana

Rheas are large, flightless birds with gray-brown plumage, long legs and long necks, similar to an ostrich. These birds can reach 5.6 feet (1.7 m), and weigh up to 88 pounds (40 kg). Their wings are large for a flightless bird and are spread while running, to act like sails. Unlike most birds, rheas have only three toes. Their tarsus has horizontal plates on the front of it.

The National Bird of Chile, Bolivia: The Andean Condor

The Andean Condor (Vultur gryphus) is a South American bird in the New World vulture family Cathartidae and is the only member of the genus Vultur. Found in the Andes mountains and adjacent Pacific coasts of western South America, the Andean Condor has a wingspan of up to 3.2 m/10.5 ft [2] but is exceeded by the Wandering Albatross (at up to 3.6 m/12 ft), the Southern Royal Albatross, the Dalmatian and the Great White Pelicans (at reportedly up to 3.5 m/11.6 ft).[3]
It is a large black vulture with a ruff of white feathers surrounding the base of the neck and, especially in the male, large white patches on the wings. The head and neck are nearly featherless, and are a dull red color, which may flush and therefore change color in response to the bird's emotional state. In the male, there is a wattle on the neck and a large, dark red comb or caruncle on the crown of the head. Unlike most birds of prey, the male is larger than the female.
The condor is primarily a scavenger, feeding on carrion. It prefers large carcasses, such as those of deer or cattle. It reaches sexual maturity at five or six years of age and nests at elevations of up to 5,000 m (16,000 ft), generally on inaccessible rock ledges. One or two eggs are usually laid. It is one of the world's longest-living birds, with a lifespan of over 70 years in some cases.
The Andean Condor is a national symbol of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru and plays an important role in the folklore and mythology of the Andean regions. The Andean Condor is considered near threatened by the IUCN.[1] It is threatened by habitat loss and by secondary poisoning from carcasses killed by hunters. Captive breeding programs have been instituted in several countries.
