Brown Thrasher

The Brown Thrasher: How cool looking is this bird!?!? Those eyes! I shot this stunner along Dead Pond Trail on Saturday, June 6th. S/He was pretty cooperative, allowing me to take several (100) shots from different angles:) I've always liked the brown thrasher but they tend to be pretty inconspicuous, hanging out in the underbrush scratching up leaves and debris in search of lunch. I was happy for the opportunity to get great looks at this beauty and share some of my luck with you! Thanks, T, for helping me with the luck!
Least Bittern Update: Nothing new to report. No one has seen the bitterns for several days now and it appears the nest has been abandoned:(

Gorgeous! I never have such luck with them - they're always under - digging and hiding from me :o)

What kind of camera equipment do you use...camera, lens, etc.? I just got a Canon EOS 50 D and am trying to use it a lot before I head to Alaska this Saturday. Just curious what you are using....great photos!
