every year i have a family of curved bill thrashers that live in a nest in a cholla bramble in my back yard. 6 feet in the air, surrounded by spiny branches, the thrashers have raised their babies, safe from the neighborhood cats, safe from my dogs.
yesterday i saw this at lunch:
either an owl in the night or a hawk in the morning had obliterated my resident thrashers. they were a fixture in our back yard and they are greatly missed! thrashers have my favorite bird call. it is terribly quiet today…
