They are found in dense brush, often searching for food in dry leaves on the ground and are omnivorous, eating insects, berries, nuts, seeds, as well as earthworms, snails, and sometimes lizards. The female lays 3 - 5 eggs in a twig nest lined with grass. Both parents incubate and feed the young. These birds raise two or three broods in a year.
The Brown Thrasher is recognized as a bird that has one of the largest song repertoires of all the bird species. These birds like to feed on the ground using their long curved bill to search leaf and ground debris for food. You can attract them to your backyard with seed, and suet feeders.
