The Alethes are small mainly insectivorous birds in the genus Alethe of the Old World flycatcher and chat family Muscicapidae. The genus is one of many chats moved from the thrush family to the flycatchers. [more]
The shortwings are colorful medium-sized mostly insectivorous in the genera Brachypteryx of the thrush family Turdidae. In addition to these another species, the Great Shortwing, Heinrichia calligyna, is known as a shortwing. [more]
The Sulawesi Thrush (Cataponera turdoides) is a species of bird, monotypic within the genus Cataponera, in the Turdidae family. It is endemic to Indonesia, where it inhabits subtropical or tropical moist montane forests. [more]
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 (Winker & Pruett, 2006) which is sometimes merged into Catharus. [more]
