Critters: Brown Thrasher, March 4, 2017

Saturday's Critters, Camera Critters, and I'd Rather B Birdin'

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, January 27, 2017
Brown Thrashers, Toxostoma rufum, relatives of Mockingbirds and Catbirds, can imitate an amazing number of other bird's songs. They live in dense shrubs, hedgerows, and edges of forests in eastern and central United States and southern Canada.

Since they are ground feeders that eat insects, worms, berries, fruit and seeds, I was surprised to see this one on my suet feeder. It must be the sunflower seeds in the suet that attracted him. These photos are not as clear as I would like them to be; they were made through my dining room window.

Have a great week-end!

  1. Hello, the Brown Thrasher is a great backyard bird. I do not see them often at feeders. Great shots. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  2. I remeber brown thrashers from my time in Canada. Very smart birds and pretty big to be climbing over your feeders!

  3. Great captures of the thrasher at the feeder ~ thanks,

    Wishing you a Happy Weekend ~ ^_^

  4. How neat to see this beautiful bird at your feeder. They are such a rich brown! Enjoy your weekend! Hugs!

  5. I've always really liked brown thrashers!

  6. I like these birds and see them out as we leave the strip pit area but never close enough to get a shot of one.

  7. Nice shots of the brown thrasher. I had one visit last year but haven't been lucky enough to see one this year.

  8. Don't ya just LOVE how nature takes over and the camouflage is so identical to their environment most times? These are perfect examples of nature at its best. Great captures, great bird.
