OK, I’ll buy that. I didn’t see the expected downcurve until you pointed it out, but the yellow eyes are probably more definitive (and the wing-bars).

The bill looks foreshortened because of this pose, but note that it’s all dark, down-curved and quite pointy. The breast and flanks have streaks rather than spots; the eye is yellow. The whole color scheme is right for Brown Thrasher, even down to the white wing bars, which you won’t see on any of our Thrushes.

Does anyone know what kind of thrush this is. Was in my backyard the last few days foraging on the ground. I have definitely had 2 hermit thrushes, but this one looks redder with bolder spots on the breast. Thanks, Carol
