Crissal Thrasher

Recurvirostra americana

The Crissal Thrasher has long been a nemesis bird for me. Though I’ve made attempts in California to collect images, it took a trip to Henderson Nevada to get my first recognisable shots. I don’t consider these as successful. I managed better images while in New Mexico and on my way to Texas in 2020. This shy, secretive bird lives in the desert south-west and northern Mexico. Mesquite thickets are generally preferred habitat.
