Description of the Bird
this is my first sighting of this bird here in 11 years of living here. he/she appeared for three straight days, visible right out our window, active throughout the day. bird was quiet, no singing heard or observed. bird was actively feeding by scraping leaves beneath honeysuckle bushes. he also availed himself of fallen apples. many juncos, house sparrows and starlings working the same area. the bird was shy and quite observant: minimal movement on my part tended to cause him to fly or run away to cover.

i've lived in the east where the bird is very common; living here for 11 years i'm familiar with sage thrasher, pipits, thrushes, etc., and other SW thrashers...
