The White-necked Thrush is distributed from Mexico through Colombia and northern South America with a disjunct population in eastern and southern Brazil and adjoining areas of Paraguay and Argentina. Some authorities regard White-throated Thrush Turdus assimilis of Central America and South America west of the Andes as a separate species.

It is found in the undergrowth and near the ground in humid forest and seems to be quite a shy bird.

It is brown above with greyish underparts and a white throat with dark streaks and a white crescent on the breast. The bill is dark and it has a thin orange-yellow eye-ring.

There are recordings of this species at xeno-canto.
