Brown Thrasher Up Close and Natural



This solitary Brown Thrasher has been hanging out in the wood behind the backyard all winter and is becoming my favorite bird. It is the State Bird of Georgia and considered common in some areas of the south, but here it is a rare bird that is typically only seen in the cooler months. The Thrasher has a very expressive face and eyes has become a bit of a Backyard personality, often sparing with the Blue Jays who think they rule the yard. Perhaps it will try and find a mate this spring. I'm slowly teaching it to eat out of my hand - may take awhile. It is seeing some of the Blue Jays eat from my hand and not liking it - but not trusting enough yet. In the meantime it is coming quite close, but staying safe just inside the heavy brush allowing for some great closeups! Stay tuned.
