Wild Bird Wednesday
Last week I shared the Brown Thrasher. This week it’s back, and brought its offspring. The adults build the nest together, and share incubation duties and feeding.
The North American Breeding Bird Survey shows the Brown Thrasher’s numbers declined 41% from 1966 to 2014. Along with loss of habitat, this website states: They can become unintended casualties of pesticides that people use to control insects, including organophosphates used in pecan plantations, dieldrin used on fields, and heptachlor used to combat Japanese beetles.
