Brown Thrasher or just Juvenile Northern Mockingbird?
Posted 23 November 2012 - 12:23 AM
These are pictures of the same bird, who just moved a little bit between shots. Pictures taken at the Kroger Wetlands in Marietta Ohio in southeastern Ohio on October 24th. At the time I took the pictures, I really thought that I had a Brown Thrasher versus a juvenile Northern Mockingbird. The pictures are not great, and a few siloutte photos that I think would have been more definitive came out blurry, so no help there. Still as I zoom up these pictures in Picasa, I really do think that I have a Brown Thrasher versus a juvenile Northern Mockingbird. Can any one tell if I am right or not?
By the way, does anyone have any idea why in Picasa, I can zoom a picture in or crop it down, yet every time I try to move it to the Whatbird Forum posting, it just returns to its normal original size?
Thanks in advance for any help you can give on either or both questions above.

Thanks for the ID. It is a lifer for me. Have a great rest of Thanksgiving. Oh by the way, welcome to Maryland joining the Big 10 starting in 2014. The school has a good basketball tradition, and is betting than 5 or 6 teams in the Big 10 from a football standpoint also. Bye for now.

So how has the entire global warming frenzy with all its predictions of dire consequences, become so widely believed, accepted and regarded as a real threat to planet Earth? That is the most amazing part of the story.
To start with global warming has the backing of the United Nations, a major world force. Second, it has the backing of a former Vice President and very popular political figure. Third it has the endorsement of Hollywood, and that’s enough for millions. And, fourth, the environmentalists love global warming. It is their tool to combat fossil fuels. So with the environmentalists, the UN, Gore and Hollywood touting Global Warming and predictions of doom and gloom, the media has scrambled with excitement to climb aboard. After all the media loves a crisis. From YK2 to killer bees the media just loves to tell us our lives are threatened. And the media is biased toward liberal, so it’s pre-programmed to support Al Gore and UN. CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, The LA Times, The Washington Post, the Associated Press and here in San Diego The Union Tribune are all constantly promoting the global warming crisis.

The Maryland thing has been all over the news. I don't follow college sports that much, but it'll be interesting to see how they do in the Big 10!
