A Brown Thrasher in the Woods

This Brown Thrasher was up on a dead tree located in the woodlands in what I refer to as the gulch area a few days ago.  I was taking pictures of the Baltimore Oriole that was nearby and saw this Brown Thrasher.  This was the first Brown Thrasher I have seen here at the little farm.  These are medium-sized birds that are approximately the same size as a Mockingbird.  Their color is a rusty brown on the back and head and a buff with brown streaks on the underside of the wings and on their chest.    The Brown Thrasher has a stout pointed bill.  They hunt for insects on the ground in ditches and in woodland areas.  I have only seen a few of these birds ever.  They are shy birds.  I was glad to get the pictures.  I took these pictures on May 5, 2012 late in the afternoon from my driveway at the street here.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!
