What Thrasher

Recommended Posts

This was one of the target birds I wanted when I visited Bandeleier Monument and vicinity last spring.   I failed to find one.  I may have been too early.

I agree with Bendire's. I would expect a longer bill on a Curve-billed.

Well, guys, like you, I thought it was a Bendire's, but, got an email from the eBird reviewer and he informs me it is a young Curve-billed Thrasher. Such is birding.

I'm going to agree on young/short-billed Curve-billed Thrasher. The bill feels too curved for Bendire's to me, and the smudgy breast both say CBTH. I also know that CBTH are quite common in Pueblo, whereas Bendire's has never been seen that far northeast.
