Brown Thrasher (cool bird)

7 posts in this topic

It was fun watching this guy work. Up and down his head would go, just to eventually pick up a piece of corn. I don't know if he was trying to split it in two first or what. That was all he picked up though, just a kernel of corn.

They are a neat bird, beak almost seems to big for its head. I like the second picture. I have heard they like popcorn of all things. I have never had one around here to try it with though.

Thanks, Jay. I think I may have to lay off the birds for awhile. That's all I dreamed about last night, birds, birds and more birds. Pretty soon I'm going to grow wings. However, I believe I captured one more bird this morning, that I hadn't had a good picture of. I'll soon find out. After this, I'll cease and desist until I get a report of indigo buntings, cedar waxwings, a scarlet tanager, pileated woodpecker, or something else new and unique to this area.

Cool bird is right! I like the pose in the second photo.

The Marshall paper had an insert in its Saturday edition of good places to go bird watching. The article was written by a Marshall birder, and listed a few of your "to do" list along with some I had never heard of. If you want a copy, I can get it to you. Nothing like helping to feed an addiction, right? grin

Nice work X-man. The brown thrasher early morning song could best be described as amazing!

Thanks for the comments all, and Chicks, thanks for the offer of the article. However, I've already seen it and gone thru it.
