Curve-billed Thrasher posing

Curve-billed Thrashers can be found in several areas around Canon City, CO. This one was along Tunnel Drive Road at the far west end of town. As can be seen in the top pic, this area includes tree cholla which is the favored by this species in this area. I enjoy how Curve-billed Thrashers, when one does not intrude in the birds' space, will perch in place as though posing for photos. SeEtta
