The Travels of Tug 44

Brown Thrasher

The Brown Thrasher is a robin-sized brown bird with a streaked chest. I have not been able to get close enough to one as they are rarely seen and spend most of their time deep in the woods. The only two I have seen were high in a distant tree, singing their hearts out.   high-res

The Brown Thrasher got its name from the way it forages for food. It sticks its beak into the forest's leaf litter and "thrashes" back and forth, exposing and eating all kinds of bugs and worms.   high-res
