Woodpecker?


this picture was taken in central Pennsylvania in the Spring of this year. The beak and breast markings lead me to think woodpecker family. I observed it eating ants on the ground. Mid-large sized 7-9 inches.

Brown Thrasher
by: Judy-Seattle

At first I thought your visitor might be a Wood Thrush. But after looking in my bird book, I think it is probably a Brown Thrasher because it has wing bars and yellow eyes and a long tail.
