BROWN THRASHERs are really quite fascinating! I have been mistaking the ones in our back yard for Thrush which are in the same family. A Brown Thrasher is thinner than a robin: bright rufous above, heavily striped below. Note also wing bars, rather curved bill, long tail and yellow eye.Their song resembles the Catbird's song, but more musical and each phrase usually in pairs. Their range is from S Canada to the Gulf states; east of the Rockies. (Source: Peterson Field Guides) Here is the one that visits our suet every day.
