Brown Thrasher


brown thrasher

I want you to have something to come and see while I'm gone hiking. I've scheduled a post- at least a picture for most days. That way you can see some of the many wonderful discoveries of the past few days.

I wish the focus was a little better on this, but I was really thrilled to get a picture of the brown thrasher. It's a large bird, slightly bigger than a robin, and usually secretive, hopping along the ground in hiding in the brush. But Ellen and I found this one in a treetop, singing it's head off. It's spring!

Great capture. It always amazes me how the balance on those branches. He seems like a happy little guy.

Getting a good new find like this is much more important than picture quality. It's just fun to know that you got it. You did a good job.

What a wonderful shot! I don't think I've ever seen this bird..or, if I did, I wouldn't know. I've been out of touch, celebrating my son's wedding. When you get home, check out my blog for pictures -
