The Brown Thrasher is uncommon, solitary and inconspicuous, usually hidden in dense brush where it forages on the ground tossing leaves and debris with bill to expose insects and other invertebrates. (Sibley Birds)
We saw one this morning.
When daisies pied and violets blue
And lady-smocks all silver-white
And cuckoo-buds of yellow hue
Do paint the meadows with delight, – William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
Interesting, I also saw a Brown Thrasher this morning in my back yard in Etobicoke!
