Bird Pic Of The Week

Brown Thrasher

(Toxostoma rufum)

Where: Richmond, VA • Glidewell Rd.

Notes: Ever since I first photographed a Brown Thrasher's nest in my neighbor's side-ward a few years ago, this has become one of my favorite yardbirds. The hours of observation spent, gave me a familiarity with this species that I never would have gotten from occasional encounters while field-birding. When I designed the landscape at my residence, I was sure to include a space for a brush pile in the back corner of the lot behind some well placed shrubs. This gives me a place to dispose of fallen tree branches and pulled weeds, without filling up the county landfill. As the pile grows, it offers shelter and food to many such animals. As the leaves, weeds and branches decompose, it offers housing for insects and worms. They in turn, become food for the yardbirds. I believe this has a lot to do with the presence of this species in my yard. It has been a regular visitor ever since I started stacking yard debris along the back fencing. I love seeing this bird, almost daily, at its regular visits to the water feature.

THE BIRD SPA

The Birdbath Alternative • DIY Installation Instructions and Parts List

Birds, like all other animals, prefer habitats that meet all their basic survival needs: food, shelter and WATER! They depend on water to condition their feathers for flight, to help maintain their body temperature, for hydration, and for hygiene. A landscape with a consistent, clean running water source will attract both a greater number of species and a higher count of birds. This especially applies to the many migratory and insect-eating species too. The Bird Spa is a low maintenance water feature, designed specifically for birds. Has ATTRACTED 80 DIFFERENT SPECIES at a single location in central Virginia!
