Thrush? - Northern Argentina

This bird was seen near Lake Ibera in January. It looks to me as though it should be a thrush or pipit but I cannot identify one with speckling above and below that should be in this part of the country. Does anyone know what it is?

It looks like a juvenile thrush that will loose those markings from the upperside (think difference between young and older Blackbird!). I do not have a book for that area so you will have to make your own guess.
