1A person or thing that thrashes.
- While his guitar used to sound like an impending revolution, his talents now seem comparable to any average American rock string thrasher.
- Here was a band that seemingly had that bit of something that at the same time appealed to indie kids, seasoned metallers, thrashers and fledgling ravers.
- Once again happy, healthy and whole, the Swedish thrashers with a meaningful message and a kooky name are ready to embark on a journey of music and merriment.
A thrush-like American songbird of the mockingbird family, with mainly brown or grey plumage, a long tail, and a downcurved bill.
- Family Mimidae: five genera, in particular Toxostoma, and several species
- Among birds that can be attracted in the summer are brown thrashers, catbirds, robins, thrushes, waxwings, woodpeckers, orioles, cardinals, towhees and grosbeaks.
- Although this is desert, there is an incredible diversity of bird life along the river and in other areas of the park - mourning doves, American kestrel falcons, nighthawks and brown thrashers are just a few of the birds that call it home.
- The song can sound like hoots and whistles, in a repeating pattern similar to that of a mockingbird or thrasher.
early 19th century: perhaps from English dialect thrusher, thresher 'thrush'.
