Regina, SK, neighbourhood again this year — shy, beautiful singers that perch high on tree-tops and chatter, chant, whistle and generally carry on.
The Brown Thrashers are also attracted to the suet that was put out to draw in the woodpeckers that never arrived.
(The robins also like this suet, so it's not going to waste... Still, it would be great to see a woodpecker here...)
The Brown Thrashers are fairly regular visitors — we see them flit through the yard several times a week — so are likely nesting somewhere nearby. (I hope they bring their fledgling thrashers to visit, too.)
