Bendire's Thrasher

Toxostoma bendirei ORDER: PASSERIFORMES FAMILY: MIMIDAE

IUCN Conservation Status: Vulnerable

Bendire's Thrasher is a bird of the deserts of southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico. Unlike other southwestern thrashers, it leaves the northern portion of its breeding range in winter, and wanderers sometimes appear at unexpected locations.
