Description

This spring I was fortunate enough to watch a Brown Thrasher family in a local Master Gardener public garden. I first notice two fledglings in the undergrowth and one of them seem to be very interest in me. A few minutes later, the fledgling flew up to a branch in a small ornamental tree and one of the parents joined it. The dappled light through the young leaves gave me enough light to get this photo. If you look closely, you will see some type of insect in the parent’s mouth. The parent flew off and the fledgling hopped around the tree limbs and would check me out every time he moved. I was sitting on a bench about twelve feet away. I think we both enjoyed the moment.

    Have a family of brown Thrashers on my porch! They built a nest in my hanging petunia basket..killed the flowers but I was able to watch the parents build the nest and was thrilled to see the babies little mouths once the eggs hatched
    Mom and dad are constantly feeding the hungry little chirpers
