- Cool Facts
- Water may be present in the desert habitat of the LeConte's Thrasher for only a few days each year, and even then the bird rarely drinks it. It gets its water from the insect food it eats.
- The oldest recorded LeConte's Thrasher was a male, and at least 5 years, 8 months old when he was found in California, the same state where he had been banded.
