Pearly-eyed Thrasher
Margarops fuscatus


On the ABC's, Bonaire is the only island where this species occurs. Drab gray-brown and heavily streaked, with a long, white-tipped tail. Its striking white eye make it seem especially alert—and so it should be. Thrasher populations have suffered declines due to competition from Troupials, which are not native to Bonaire but were introduced from nearby Curacao .
