Thrush, Wood 
1[fide Glenn Kendall] @Socorro Co.: Bosquecito
Bosquecito Road starts at US 380 just east of the Rio Grande and heads north. Glenn's place is about three miles north of the highway.
Glenn observed this bird in his yard for about two weeks in mid-November. I've always found Glenn to be a careful, experienced observer. He's quite familiar with the species from growing up in Pennsylvania.
