Curve-Billed Thrasher

Toxostoma curvirostre

The Curve-Billed Thrasher is resident throughout its range, which includes most of Mexico, parts of Southern Arizona and New Mexico, and Texas. In Tucson these birds are regulars in the residential neighborhoods. The Whit-Wheet calls of these birds is easily heard at distance and announce their presence well before they are seen. Western birds and eastern birds differ somewhat in appearance, with the Texas (eastern) group having a lighter breast with more contrasting spots.
