Northbrook, Illinois — residential area
I saw this Brown Thrasher while on my roofing job. I call it a residential area, but that doesn’t describe it very well. It was a very posh neighborhood, with lots of three or four acres. The Brown Thrasher was feeding in the front yard, in the middle of the large expanse of lawn.
