The Bendire's Thrasher (Toxostoma bendirei) is a desert thrasher of the southwestern United States as well as parts of adjacent Mexico. It is often confused with the similar Curve-billed Thrasher. The individual shown in the three shots shown here was near Salton City, Imperial Co., California, in November, 1993. The shots were taken with a Canon T-90 and FD 400mm F/5.6 lens on Kodachrome 200 film.
