The Mimid Family is composed of mockingbirds and thrashers, birds whose songs imitate other bird songs. All members of this family are loud singers and a few of them like this Brown Thrasher are beautiful and big. When a bird is this large and this brightly colored one would assume it would be easy to see, but instead loud singing birds are often in dense brush where they are often difficult to view. This is one of the fine looking breeding birds on the Chico, a few who have just returned north from spending a winter in a warmer climate.
