That is a wonderful find for what is a usually very shy ground bird - I guess those hormones bring out the best! They really do sound like a mockingbird/catbird...etc.. Great shot!
I love the windblown look he is showing too.These guys do make some beautiful music. They haven't arrived back yet in my MN garden.
I love your shot of the B. Thrasher. I had one in my yard a few days ago scratching and digging in the leaves. He is a beauty that I rarely see....but love it when I do!
He sings by twos Hannibal!! I had two of these guys outside my apartment window this morning! My last full day here, whooopppeeeee!!!
Considering his size one can expect his song to be loud :-)A wonderful shot, congrats!
..and you caught him so well..with his bill open and singing..love that golden eye..never knew his tail feathers were so long...Great shot, Hannibal! I was told they only repeat their calls twice b/f moving onto their next version..unlike the mock who repeats things three or four times. I'm always up for those little bits of info..so much to learn..sigh!
I can almost hear his songs now.These guys are superb singers. Blessings,Ruth
Great photo! I always enjoy listening to them sing and mimic.
