A truly underestimated bird, I find them quite beautiful. The only problem being getting close enough to photograph.

In these images, I think I found a nest, although I didn't hunt through the brush to find it, they were pulling out the stops to distract me. I went along, and the following images are examples of playing peek-a-boo, with these large handsome Song Birds. Most of these are close to full frame.

He finally popped out in the clear open

These shots are good, Dave - A bird or animal doesn't have to be in the clear to make the shot good. esp if it is part of there nature to be "elusive"

They're a heck of a lot easier to approach then our Belted Kingfisher, who actually behaves as if he's teasing - But the Brown Thrasher doesn't like being close to humans. They're a large Song Bird, about 12 inches long. But as you can see quite handsome...

We must have a smaller relative of these guys down here in Va. about 6 inches but the markings are on the money.They like the brambles near the river and are not easy to get a shot at as they tend to stay under cover.
Nice shots.

There is a look a like called the Brown Thrush, quite similar, but quite a bit smaller...:O

Whoops - called the Wood Thrush! - My bad

Thrashers are related to Mockingbirds, Thrushes to Robins.
