TRUE WINTER RANGE OF THE VEERY (CATHARUS FUSCESCENS): LESSONS FOR DETERMINING WINTER RANGES OF SPECIES THAT WINTER IN THE TROPICS

Veery (Catharus fuscescens) Science Article 2

abstract

Most recent references describe the winter range of the Veery (Catharus fuscescens) as including an extensive area from northern Colombia, Venezuela, and Guyana south to south-central Brazil. Analysis of seasonal distribution of specimen records in SouthAmerica, however, shows that 91 of 105 specimens were taken during spring and fall, notwinter; the remaining 14, taken from 2 December to 20 February, are all from three smallareas at the periphery or south of the Amazon basin.
