Birds - Brown Thrasher

Brown thrashers frequent thickets and shrubby areas of the park, often near forest edges and near the visitor center. The bird, like all mockingbirds, is known for its singing ability, but the brown thrasher is thought to have one of the broadest repertoires of North American birds. Brown thrashers usually sing phrases in pairs. Brown thrashers are first observed at Wind Cave National Park around late April to early May.
