California Thrasher

Toxostoma redivivum


A larger, gray-brown bird with a long tail that is orange on the underside. The bill is long and curved downward which is distinctive. It was hunting worms on a very rainy day. The most worms I saw in its bill at once was 6!


Our front yard that has both Oak Woodland and Chaparral communities. These images were taken in the bark and sidewalk just outside the front door.
