Curve-billed Thrasher

A common bird of the arid Southwest, the Curve-billed Thrasher occurs in a range of habitats. Perhaps because of its broader tolerances, it is the most widespread of the western thrashers.

The Curve-billed Thrasher that lives in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona and northwestern Mexico looks different than the form that lives in the Chihuahuan Desert of Texas and central Mexico, and they may be separate species. The Texas and eastern bird has a lighter breast, more contrasting spots, pale wingbars, and white tail corners. The more western form has a grayer breast with less obvious spots, inconspicuous wingbars, and smaller, more grayish tail corners.

Lovely shot, Jane!
You present this shot of Curved-billed Thrasher sharply, with fine blue sky BG and excellently composed in the natural foliage with no clone tool removal necessary or desirable.
TFS and best wishes,
Ivan
