Two-tailed Thrasher

Two curve-billed thrashers perch on a saguaro such that it looks like the thrasher in front has two tails, one in front and one in back, in the Troon neighborhood of Scottsdale, Arizona in January 2020

The curve-billed thrasher is common here but not so the two-tailed thrasher, this is the only one I’ve seen. To my eyes it looks like a failure in design, one tail in front and one behind, but perhaps I’m not the best judge since one of us soars above the desert and one of us gets dizzy standing on a ladder.
