LeConte's Thrasher (Toxostoma lecontei) - 30Nov2015

This is the rarest of the Arizona thrashers and it took some time to find it at the "Thrasher Spot" west of Phoenix, AZ.  The site is a post-apocalyptic looking site with tons of discarded appliances and tumbleweeds.

Per the Cornell website: "An uncommon resident of the deserts of the American Southwest and northwestern Mexico, the Le Conte's Thrasher inhabits some of the most desolate environments on the continent."
