Several Brown Thrashers were observed foraging on the ground among the leaves at the base of the trees, shrubs and grasses. The sound they make as they displace the leaf litter with their bills and feet is audible and distinct. This observation presents a few images of this activity.
The Brown Thrasher (Toxostoma rufum) is a bird in the family Mimidae, which also includes the New World catbirds and mockingbirds. The dispersal of the Brown Thrasher is abundant throughout the eastern and central United States, southern and central Canada, and is the only thrasher to live primarily east of the Rockies and central Texas. It is the state bird of Georgia.
