Woohoo – I saw another new bird – a brown thrasher – at my backyard goldfish pond

I love to watch the birds that come to my goldfish pond and bathe and get a drink. This is baby bird season, my favorite time of year, and I’m getting a lot of baby birds coming to my pond for their first bath and drink.

Yesterday I got a new surprise! I get to add a new bird to my backyard bird watching list as well as my Bird Watching Life List.

Brown ThrasherFor the past several weeks, I have seen a flash of a brown bird with a long tail. From what I could tell from my stack of bird watching field guides, it was a brown thrasher, but I could not be sure.

Finally, yesterday, one of them landed at the pond while I was on my bench, and I got a good look at it. Yep, it is a brown thrasher!

I love to get a good look at one of God’s creatures!

  1. me too, X, it lifts your heart to see them visiting your garden, almost gracing it with their presence. I have lost my friend and companion, Bess, (my Border Collie) she died last Month, ‘X’ and I still find myself crying when I think of her (just as now) . The garden has become somewhere I can talk to her and remember her antics. take care my friend and I hope many more bird sightings will be added to your list. xPenx (aka Lady Penelope)
