The foxy brown Thrasher is apparently secretive and hard to spot. Not so where I live, because the foxy brown Thrasher thinks he's a boy Mockingbird and he is so good at singing like a boy Mockingbird he has unnerved the local boy Mockingbirds and sent them packing. Girl Mockingbirds are fascinated by him.
Unlike a boy Mockingbird a Brown Thrasher is sneaky. He doesn't sing in the top
of a tree, but prefers to lurk where he can't be seen. Girl Mockingbirds
hear his voice, they potter around deliberately ignoring him in the traditional
girl Mockingbird fashion. The Brown Thrasher is not in the least interested, and
for some reason this makes girl Mockingbirds more interested. A time comes
however when being deliberately ignored by girl Mockingbirds so unnerves the
Brown Thrasher he shuts up and flies off.
