The male Black-throated Thrush has black from the chin to the breast with a greyish black tail. The upperparts are grey and the underparts are whitish with orange-red underwing coverts. Females and immatures are similar but the black on the throat and breast is replaced with dusky streaking.
The breeding range of the black-throated thrush extends from the extreme east of Europe to Western Siberia and north-west Mongolia.
This is a very rare sighting in the Netherlands and it is only the tenth time it has been recorded here.
