|The species Grand Cayman Thrush is extinct.
- Turdus ravidus
Differs from Red-legged Thrush in lacking or having inconspicous throat stripes (visible on close inspection of some but not all specimens); from a distance the throat was bluish slate-grey. Otherwise mostly plumbeous with white untertail and white tips on most tail feathers; bill, legs, and orbital ring orange-red to coral red. Males and females similar in plumage but males larger. Juveniles mostly buffy, not spotted (difference from Red-legged Thrush).
Was found on Grand Cayman Island in the Caymans. Became extinct between 1916 and the 1960ties.
Clearly closely related to Red-legged Thrush and has as that species in the past been placed in the genus Mimocichla.
Described as Mangrove swamp with coral rocks.
Seems to have been skittish, diving into the depth of the mangroves and disappearing when approached. Voice is described as very subdued, song reminding or a Budgerigar.
