Curved-billed Thrasher by Kimberly Chadwick


Available to buy on…

Taken in Tucson, AZ 2010 with a Canon Powershot sx10is P&S

A large conspicuous bird of the southwestern deserts, including suburbs, favoring areas with abundant cholla and other cacti. its loud call is one of the most familiar bird sounds from central AZ.

VOICE is a busy, skittering jumble of repeated phrases and staccato notes, Call a far-carrying whit-wheet! often with extra note at end, and a rich chuk.

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.
