THE NATIONAL BIRD
Of all the neautiful birds that live in or fly through Costa Rica, guess what the National bird of Costa Rica is? It is the Clay-colored Robin or as it is called now the Clay-colored Thrush. You can find the Clay-colored Thrush anywhere from southern Texas to Colombia, South America. In many respects the Clay-colored Thrush appears very much like the American Robin. However, it does not have the trademark red breast of the American Robin. Although the Clay-colored Thrush lacks some of the startling color of other Costa Rican birds, the people of Costa Rica have chosen it as their National bird because of its strong, melodious song.
