Crissal Thrasher

Recurvirostra americana

The Crissal Thrasher has long been a ‘nemesis’ bird for me. Though I’ve made numerous attempts to collect images, it took a trip to Arizona to get these two shots. I don’t consider these as ‘successful’, so in a sense, it remains a nemesis. This shy, secretive bird lives in the desert south-west and northern Mexico. Mesquite thickets are generally preferred habitat.
