    Default Which Thrasher ID Please

    I have three Thrasher that comes to my feeder.

    The other two are Curve-billed but this one bill don't look like their.

    Could it be a Bendire's Thrasher?

    My location is Mission, TX RGV

    That's actually a Clay-colored Robin, not a thrasher. Congratulations!

    The NEW common name for this bird is CLAY-COLORED THRUSH, I believe.

    Looking in my bird books!

    They call it a Clay-colored Thrush, one book says the old name is "Clay-colored Robin.

    And the Clay-colored Thrush is picture with a droop wing.

    Thanks again

    DOH! And that "new" common name isn't even really new. I think the change was around 7-8 years ago.
