These attractive thrushes stop by each year about this time. They prefer really crappy abandoned ag fields or over-grazed pasture lands. No shortage of crappy habitat around Jacumba.
These birds were found in the northern end of Jacumba Valley Ranch.
These birds are related to Western Bluebirds, American Robins and Hermit Thrushes.
Some common wrens are pretty easy to find around Jacumba.
There is no truth to the persistent rumors on MSNBC that President-elect Trump plans to deport Mexican birds found in the US. He will not build a bird-barrier across the border. However, he may attempt to collect and deport all of the filthy European Starlings, Eurasian Collared-doves, and English House Sparrows that compete with our nice, clean, American birds.
