We report the first record of Turdus hauxwelli Lawrence, 1869, Hauxwell’s Thrush, from the state of Goiás, central Brazil, based on photographic and vocal records obtained at Taquaral de Goiás. This new record substantially expands the species’ distribution beyond the Amazonian domain and marks its new easternmost geographical limit. The new record extends this species’ distribution by 650 km from the nearest recent record. We also discuss the importance of this record in understanding the biogeographical affinities of the seasonal forests of central-western Brazil.
