This Thrush probably breeds in Eastern Tibet and Setchuan to Northern Yunnan. The only note recorded on its nidification is that of Col. F. M. Bailey (Journ. Bomb. Nat. Hist. Soc. vol. xxii, p. 338, 1913), writing about a trip taken “from Ta Chien-lu to Rima via Batang and Menkong on the Salween :—
“Gould’s Thrush (Turdus gouldi).—Yulung Kung, 10,500 feet, one march from Tachien-lu. Nest of twigs and moss lined with grass, situated in a bush, 6 feet from the ground. The nest contained three eggs of a greenish ground-colour with reddish-brown markings. The eggs varied very little in size and averaged 2.95 cm. x 2.01 cm. Tibetan name, Chiama Gunka.”
