Brown Thrasher

All though we call it a Brown Thrush it is not of the thrush family of  birds.
We had not seen this bird all summer, but he showed up when
 the ice covered the ground to eat sun flower seeds.
 
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December;
A magnificent thing
And sweet to remember:
"We are nearer to spring
Than we were in September."
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December.
 
"From Streams in The Desert"
