Crissal Thrasher

Overview

Crissal Thrasher: Large thrasher with gray-brown upperparts and unstreaked, gray underparts. The throat is white with dark moustache stripe, eyes are yellow, and black bill is long and strongly decurved. Tail is very long with chestnut-brown undertail coverts. Legs and feet are black.

Range and Habitat

Crissal Thrasher: Resident from southern Nevada and southeastern California to western Texas and central Mexico. Preferred habitats include in dense, low scrubby vegetation, such as desert and foothill scrub and riparian brush.

INTERESTING FACTS

The Crissal Thrasher is the only thrasher that lays unspotted eggs. It walks and runs around its territory more than it flies. Even when disturbed by a person or a predator it is most likely to run away to cover.
Their nest is usually built close up under a large branch, making access rather difficult. The location seems to afford protection from both aerial predators and from the direct rays of the sun.
