Portland, TN, United States
A family of Brown Thrashers nested in a fencerow near our home. One afternoon, when they were old enough, Mom Thrasher brought her two babies out for a walk down the fencerow. Thrashers are usually secretive and shy birds, so I felt really lucky to get to watch them on their outing. Every now and then Mom stopped to find a “snack” for the youngsters.
