Brown Thrasher 2
The brown thrasher is a low to the ground bird, meaning their nests are often in low bushes or even on the ground. They use their long beaks to thrash around in the ground cover to unearth tasty tidbits. They're omnivores, so will eat insects and worms as well as seeds and pods.
The brown thrasher (Toxostoma rufum) is a bird in the family Mimidae, which also includes the New World catbirds and mockingbirds. The dispersal of the brown thrasher is abundant throughout the eastern and central United States, southern and central Canada, and is the only thrasher to live primarily east of the Rockies and central Texas. It is the state bird of Georgia. The brown thrasher is an omnivore, with its diet ranging from insects to fruits and nuts. (Info from Wikipedia)
