Brown Thrasher Thrashing in the Backyard!




Brown Thrasher "thrashing" around for bugs next to a tree trunk

The Brown Thrasher is a very rare, attractive and exciting visitor to the open backyard. Living up to its name, this one has found a prime spot next to a small tree trunk full of insects to thrash about with its long curved beak. These birds are heard making some wild calls that rival a Mockingbird, but rarely seen in the open as they stick to the heavy brush nearby. Preferring nature's own table, these industrious birds never come to the feeder.
