California ThrasherToxostoma redivivum
This bird can be very difficult to see since its preferred habitat is often dense chaparral. You may hear it foraging in chaparral or leaf litter and perhaps expect a California Towhee but the thrasher’s black bill is long and down-curved. An expert mimic, the California Thrasher has been known to imitate Northern Flicker, House Finch, and American Robin.
Diet: Insects, seeds, small fruits
Wingspan: 12.5” Length: 12”
Did You Know?
The yellow star thistle is one of many invasive (non-native) plants threatening the ecosystems of Pinnacles. Many seeds are accidentally transported into the park on shoes and gear; you can do your part to prevent the spread of these pests by cleaning shoes, socks, and gear before visiting the park.
