G is for Gnaw - to bite at or nibble something persistently.

People bring bread to the park to feed the ducks, a favorite activity for small children. This squirrel was quick to steal a piece for himself!
Wild Bird Wednesday
The Brown Thrasher
|Brown Thrasher eating Black Oil Sunflower seeds|
We occasionally see Brown Thrashers feeding on the ground. This is first time I've seen one on our hanging feeder. Brown Thrashers eat insects, worms, berries, seeds, acorns, frogs, small snakes, and lizards.
|The smaller birds didn't seem to mind|
Brown Thrashers can be found in the eastern United States and southeastern Canada. During the breeding season, they are aggressive in defending their territory. Both parents incubate the eggs.

Have a wonderful day!
