The Grey-cheeked Thrush breeds in the taiga of northern Canada, Alaska and eastern Siberia. It migrates through North and Central America to overwinter in northern South America. See the distribution map at Birdlife International. A bit of a skulker, in its overwintering grounds it is found in the undergrowth of forest habitats.

It is similar to Swainson's Thrush C. swainsoni but it has grey cheeks and lores rather than buffy coloured.
