This curved bill thrust lit near me the other day when I just happend to have my camera as I was taking photos of flowers. He turned around on the fence several times and I was able to get some decent shots of him, or her which ever it might be. We have several pairs of these birds that stay in this neighborhood and eat bugs. These birds are ken to mockingbirds and dig for grubs and other bugs in my garden and around the trees. They even try to dig up the pots of plants I have sometimes. The have a curved bill as their name says, red eyes and sing some what simular to their cousins the mockingbirds. They will usually let me get closer to them than the other birds in my yard.
