Last week-end I went camping with two girlfriends to do some nature photography. We car camped each taking our own cars and caravanning up and down the northern part of the Eastern Sierras.
We were in Mono Basin when we heard this bird singing a song that was unfamiliar to me or my friends. I turned to follow the song and saw this bird. I had no idea what kind of bird it was, but I only got two quick shots before it disappeared into the sagebrush.
Once at home I was able to ID the bird as the Sage Thrasher- A Lifer for me!
They live in the Western Region of the USA, as well as Mexico and Baja California. They prefer sagebrush and arid planes. The east side of the Eastern Sierras is sagebrush and arid! I’m linking Whataboutbird.com so you can read more about this bird and hear it’s lovely songs. https://identify.whatbird.com/obj/591/overview/Sage_Thrasher.aspx
I’m also participating in Lisa’s of Our Eyes Open weekly bird challenge. You know I don’t do many challenges, but birds. I couldn’t resist! 😀
I hope you’re all doing well, and have a lovely week-end!
