Photography of Birds – Set # 70

Set # 70


Brown Thrasher



The brown thrasher is the state bird of Georgia. The brown thrasher also was the inspiration for the name of Atlanta’s former National Hockey League team, the Atlanta Thrashers.
The brown thrasher methods of defending itself include using its bill, which can inflict significant damage to species smaller than it, along with wing-flapping and vocal expressions.

  1. Great state bird, lucky you! I miss seeing these guys, used to count on seeing them but it’s been quite a while. Beautiful photos, H.J.! I love to hear them sing, too, they are fantastic mimids.

    • I always see them after a rainy day, they get all kinds of invertebrates from the muddy ground. Thank you, Lisa. 🙂
