Curve-billed Thrasher

Toxostoma curvirostre


Thrush-like with thumb print smudges on chest. Golden eye! Largish bird.


Hotel grounds. a real avian paradise.


I first saw a Thrasher on PN and I remember asking what it thrashed to get a name like I have seen one of my own. Wikipedia tells me "Their common name describes the behaviour of these birds when searching for food on the ground: they use their long bills to "thrash" through dirt or dead leaves."
