Brown Thrasher

I was treated to a new visitor to our yard today, a Brown Thrasher (Toxostoma rufum), apparently looking for insects and seeds beneath the clutter of fallen leaves. What a privilege for me: he or she gave me time for a few good shots in pretty good light before flitting off into the shadows, then into a tree.

Such striking yellow eyes!

  1. I enjoy your blog photos so much! This Brown Thrasher has an ideally-shaped bill for extracting his meal from the leaf litter.
