Encountered along road c. 500' south of end of South Loop around 8:00 AM (due south of "Rookery Pond" on map, just south of where road bends east slightly and meets east-west road separating North/South loops). Very loud "smack" call, like an amplified Fox Sparrow, heard on east side of rd in sandbar willow thicket. I pished, and a Brown Thrasher popped up and flew west across road, landing in willow thicket on that side. Large, mockingbird-sized bird with dark, straight bill and entirely rich rufous upperparts, bold black spot-streaks throughout otherwise bright white underparts. Long tail. I *think* the same bird was also giving a whistle call (from same area of thicket), but the main call was one I'm very familiar with from 10 years living in MA/RI/NY. Followed the bird/call as it drifted north along road, and last saw it fly across road maybe 200' before end of South Loop.
