Fledgling Brown Thrasher

Fledgling Brown Thrasher that has recovered form a cat bite.

This long-tailed and shy species is related to the Mockingbird and Gray Catbird. Thrashers eat bugs, berries, and some grains, using their beaks to fling leaves while foraging on the ground. They tend to nest in low shrubs, or even on the ground. These birds sometimes mimic other songbirds and often winter in southern and Gulf states.

This young bird was brought to us after a cat had attacked it. Although in bad condition when admitted, it made a full recovery and was released.
