Thread: Could anyone help in identifying this bird?

  1. #1

    Could anyone help in identifying this bird?


    It has a black body about the size of a common starling but is not speckled. The head is brown with a mask of light yellow on the sides of the face and a black streak from the back of the beek through the eye. The beek is about 1 inch long and curved down. It loves sunflower seeds! I cannot find this bird in any bird books or anyplace on the net. If birds crossbreed I would say it was between a starling, cowbird and thrasher but never heard of that happening. Sorry the colors don't show up better in the picture.

    If you can't see it now, someone please walk me thru the process of putting a picture on. I see it three times on my computer.

    Or, if the picture is online somewhere, you can click the insert picture icon. Then paste in the url location of the picture on the web.
