Curve Billed Thrasher in a Cholla Cactus

Curve Billed Thrasher

I took this photo of one of the several curve billed thrashers that have been hanging around the area. There are several pairs that have built nests which should be filled with eggs soon. I hope to get some photos of the thrashers and their chicks without disturbing them this spring.

I’m not sure what the bird has in its bill, maybe a seed or something for its mate. Click on the image to enlarge.
