Observation details

Probably three. Two in view for at least 15 minutes south of the ponds. First seen foraging on the small rise just south of the southern pond. Running from place to place with tail held high - rusty undertail obvious. Every few moments they would jump into a small bush and climb up thru the branches and look around, then glide down to the ground to forage . The pair were never more than 15 feet apart and often visited the same bush. Because of the wind I only heard them call a couple of times during lulls. I did hear one thrasher call north of the pond after I had seen the pair to the south. As I got into my car I heard the pair to the south again. Photos. Pale sandy colored thrasher, tail darker than back, dark eye.
