|The Sage Thrasher is a songbird in the passerine
family. Their population has declined in recent years, but are
still very common.
|These songbirds are light grey-brown, with light
undersides. The Sage Thrasher lives and thrives
in sagebrush rich areas. When breeding, the female will lay
her eggs in nests built in dense sagebrush. These birds will
search the ground for insects, which is their primary food.
They will also eat fruits, especially small berries. When startled,
the Sage Thrasher will usually run along the
ground instead of flying away.
