"Curve-billed Thrasher"
Curve-billed Thrasher:   
"Common names in this genus are confusing because several other thrashers have bills with more curvature than the Curve-billed Thrasher, but the other species were not known when W. Swainson published the first description of this species in 1827 from a specimen taken on the Mexican plateau." [Cornell University, Birds of North American Online (BNA), 2015]
