Hi Steven, You would not miss Clay-colored Thrush with a visit to Quinta Mazatlan WBC. They were thick there earlier in December with no fewer than 20. They were ravenously gorging themselves on anacua berries along the main entrance drive and at a few other anacua trees along the trail.
Good luck! Justin Bosler currently in Key West, FL
