Today's bird is the Curved Billed Thrasher. This is a bird I see fairly regularly, especially in the state parks that I visit. Usually when I spot CBTs, they're on the ground, pushing leaves around with their long beaks. I hear them before I see them because of the little rustling that they make in the brush and their great camo. I took this picture at Quinta Mazatlan, a bird park in McAllen right near the airport back in January.
