The bird with the bright brown back and streaked breast hops about, thrashing among the fallen leaves, his long bill pitching them in all directions with sideways strokes as he searches for insects. Some believe the Brown Thrasher was named for this habit. He is Georgia's state bird.

Nice description in title of this beautiful photo and very nice name of this bird - Brown Thrasher :) He looks a little bit modest ;) Good photo. Best greetings - Žaltys

MaryAlice on October 14, 2009

Good evening, Zaltys, and thank you so much for stopping by and enjoying this pretty Thrasher.

Modest, he is NOT! He is the most BOLD and fearless bird I know actually! Ahhhhh, looks can be deceiving! =)

Thank you again for your many kind words and interest in the title and this bird's history as well.

It is wonderful hearing from you, and I hope you enjoy the rest of your week.

Very best regards,

Mary Alice

Landagent,

嗯,我謝謝您的拜訪,但是悲傷地,我是無法取得你的話的一份翻譯。翻譯是不完全的和沒有任何意義。 謝謝再用於可是順道走訪,不留心。我希望你可以瞭解一些什麼我在嘗試寫。 此致敬意, 瑪麗·艾麗斯 ( Mary Alice) =)

中国古代是尚鸟的,无论是三星堆,还是金沙遗址,都证明古人对鸟的崇拜,因为鸟可以通神,可以通亡灵,鸟是神灵的使者。让鸟把活着的人的哀思寄托逝者,以表达我们的缅怀之情。所以对逝者的缅怀都是激励生者奋发向上,幸福生活。衷心祝福你安康!
