Thrush-like with thumb print smudges on chest. Golden eye! Largish bird.
Hotel grounds. a real avian paradise.
I first saw a Thrasher on PN and I remember asking what it thrashed to get a name like that...now I have seen one of my own. Wikipedia tells me "Their common name describes the behaviour of these birds when searching for food on the ground: they use their long bills to "thrash" through dirt or dead leaves."https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thrasher Live and Learn.
