At the bird bath

It's big-bird time at the bird bath: 2 flickers and a red-bellied woodpecker on the rim, and at least 3 blue jays looking for space. A couple of brown thrashers are also in the vicinity.

Over on the feeder, a little Carolina wren was in the suet feeder cage this morning. Took a couple of tries for it to find its way back out, under pressure to get out of the way of the jay that was waiting nearby.

Is that a thrasher in your icon?

The icon's a bluebird (picture stolen from somewhere). The brown thrasher is brown on top, speckled below, and has a long tail: http://www.netstate.com/states/symb/birds/ga_brown_thrasher.htm.

It's also, if you see it with other birds, fairly large for a songbird type--not up to crow size or anything, but in the range with the blue jay.
