Curve-billed thrasher Toxostoma curvirostre

Identification Tips:

Similar species:

The Curve-billed Thrasher is most likely to be confused with the very similar Bendire's Thrasher. Bendire's can be told from adult Curve-billed by its smaller size and straighter bill with a yellow base to the lower mandible. Juvenile Curve-billed is very similar to Bendire's. Other thrashers lack spotting below.
