Abstract
We report the first record of the Hauxwell’s Thrush, Turdus hauxwelli Lawrence, 1869 (Aves: Turdidae) in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil. During an ornithological inventory conducted in Serra de Maracajú, municipality of Corguinho, we mist-netted and collected an individual of the species. The specimen was prepared as study skin and is held in the ornithological collection of the Museu Nacional, Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro. This record is located 472 km south of the closest visual/song record and 616 km southeast of the closest museum specimen, being the southernmost occurrence of this thrush.
