------------

The Green Cochoa (Cochoa viridis) is a bird species which was variously placed with the thrushes of family Turdidae or the related Muscicapidae (Old World flycatchers). Presently, it is considered closer to the latter, but only tentatively.

It is found in Cambodia, China, India, Laos, Myanmar, Nepal, Thailand, Vietnam, and possibly Bhutan. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.
