Fledgling Brown Thrasher
that has recovered from 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.
