I don't know how to tell for certain, but the way the wings are held low suggests to me that this thrasher is a juvenile, still in the begging stage.
At left in some of the photos is a juvenile mockingbird, also in the begging stage. It almost seems they were begging from one another.
The two coexisted peacefully in the mesquite tree
