I hope this finds you better soon, Rick. Nothing to be faulted with this "just a quick post" of yours. The details are crisp; the point of view proper; the colors and composition on that tree branch pleasing. An interesting species, and you've provided us the tools to learn more.

I hope that you're able to quickly shake whatever has gotten hold of you. Very detailed presentation of your subject. I like the different shades of brown. Nice blurred BG and sharp lower FG. Good info too. TFS.

This is a superb capture Rick!
I like the way you framed this Brown Thrasher with the branches and the bird itself is taken from a great POV with excellent sharpness and lighting that show all its features against a fine OOF natural BG.
A fine weekend image and thanks for sharing it.
Get well soon.

I hope you are feeling better today :-) I've never seen this Brown Thrasher before, only his cousin, the Curve-billed Thrasher. There is a strong family resemblance - except for the beak. Can't help but notice the same yellow eye. A wonderful pose of this bird filled with curiosity. Excellent colors and details and a wonderful setting.
