Geelbeklyster/Karoo Thrush

Die Geelbeklyster (Turdus smithi) is ‘n endemiese, gelokaliseerde algemene standvoël meestal in rivierbos en halfdorre Karoo en ingevoerde boomveld op hoëveld. Dit is ook ‘n algemene tuinvoël. Hulle kom een-een of in pare voor maar vorm groepe buite broeityd. Die voël is 22 – 24 cm groot en weeg 60 – 86 gram. In Engels staan die voël bekend as die Karoo Thrush.

The Karoo thrush (Turdus smithi) also known as Smith′s thrush, is a member of the thrush family in Africa. It has traditionally been considered a subspecies of the olive thrush (with which it is known to hybridize), but is increasingly treated as a separate species.  This medium-sized bird has a length of about 24 cm. It has a wing length between 117 and 131 mm, a culmen length between 20 and 24 mm and a tarsus length between 30.0 and 34.5 mm. It can reach a mass of at least 86 g. It differs from the olive thrush by its longer, entirely yellow bill, its longer wings, and its greyer flanks.
