The Brown Thrasher, (Toxostoma rufum), is listed in my area as uncommon, or that means usually present, but hard to find. These photographs were taken back in January of 2010, nearly two years ago, at San Angelo State Park. I haven’t seen any of them since, but as the man said, they are hard to find.
Pertinent photo data is as follows: Canon EOS 7D, 500mm f4 lens with 1.4 tele-converter, 1/1000 sec. @ f8, -0.3 EV, ISO 640, aperture priority, tripod mounted.
