The state bird of Georgia is the brown thrasher. I lived in GA for all of my college years. I don’t remember seeing this little firecracker even once.

I am working on the 50 bird challenge. Here are the first two, Alabama’s Northern Flicker and Alaska’s Willow Ptarmigan. I don’t know if I’ll get all 50 done, but these two paintings are a start.
