PIC OF THE WEEK: 03/07/16 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2016 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Richmond, VA
Notes: There is a special beauty just in the coloration of this foot long member of the mimic family, which also includes Mockingbirds and the Gray Catbird. The contrasting speckles on its buffy breast and the golden-yellow eye of the adult bird are particularly handsome. The word Thrasher was given to this group of birds because of the way they forage on the ground, often kicking leaves and debris behind them as they search for food. There are also six other species of Thrasher found in other parts of North America as well. Most of the Mid-Atlantic population migrates to the southern states during the winter, but a few remain in the area. I believe this to be the same bird that has appeared at the Bird Spa three times over the the last two months this winter, twice when it snowed. The Brown Thrasher is known to have over one thousand different songs, the greatest diversity amongst all birds. It repeats each note two or three times as it sings. If this is the same individual, it appears to have survived through the cold weather, to the emerging spring. Soon it will begin its chorus to attract a mate which it will most likely stay with for the entire breeding season.

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. A total of EIGHTY species has been attracted at a single location in central Virginia!
