General description.

The Brown Thrasher's rich, distinctly enunciated notes ring loud and clear above all other songs as the bird from some tree-top gives his musical message to the world. The performance concluded he returns to the undergrowth whence one may hear his explosive, whistled _wheeu_ or sharp kissing note. The Brown Thrasher has a tail and bill much longer than other Thrushes, white wing-bars, and a pale yellow eye.
