Default "Brown" phased mockingbird. Steve?

Not the best shots but only get some of this bird at a distance. Steve here is that brown mockingbird that now appears to be molting. It is definitely going through changes since the last shots. I'm wondering if it's maybe a hybrid if that is possible. Mockingbird/brown thrasher cross. I looked at juvy BT and it doesn't match up there. What do you or anyone else think.

What other mockingbirds do.

Interesting bird, definitely has a mockingbird head and body. It will be very interested in what Steve has to say.

He is different, no doubt. I have never seen one quite like it.

Is it a Bendire's Thrasher, or a cross between a mockingbird & Bendire's Thrasher.?

Of the different types of thrashers that one would be the closest in appearance but it would be very far out of it's range. According to Ebird listings for my county only a single sage thrasher was been spotted besides brown thrashers, no others.

I thought about a Sage Thrasher and a Bendire's but I think It's a mockingbird. Just very brown coloration.
