Ramphocinclus brachyurus

The white-breasted thrasher, also known as goj blan in Creole, is a species of bird in the family Mimidae. Semper and Sclater describe the white-breasted thrasher as an "inquisitive and noisy bird" that would often "keep up a constant warning chatter, and throw itself about in all sorts of contortions" when being disturbed. It is endemic to Martinique and Saint Lucia, found only on these two islands of the Lesser Antilles. This resident species is easy to find within their range; however, it is classified as endangered by the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species mainly due to its restricted habitat.
