As Tolkien describes in the book: "As a boy he used to practice throwing stones at things, until rabbits and squirrels, and even birds, got out of his way as quick as lightning if they saw him stoop; and even grownup he had still spent a deal of his time at quoits, dart-throwing, shooting at the wand, bowls, ninepins and other quiet games of the aiming and throwing sort."

Hobbits in general are excellent at throwing stones. It is a racial trait. See "Concerning Hobbits" in the beginning of "The Fellowship of the Ring."

The hobbits often throw things in games. Bilbo was very good with stones, darts and quoits.

He throws a rock at the thrush because he thought the thrush was listening to their conversations, and was suspicious and he had a really bad temper, so he threw a rock at it.

What did Tolkien mean by a thunder battle?

Tolkien was talking about that awesome occasion when two large thunderstorms collide in the atmosphere. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The "thunder-battle" described in The Hobbit is a "game" played by the Stone Mountain Giants of the Misty Mountains. They throw large boulders back and forth, when a boulder is not caught by a giant it crashes against the mountainside making the sound of "thunder". This is described in first edition copies of the Hobbit, but Tolkien removed it from later editions when he edited the Hobbit to make it compatible with the LOTR story. Most likely it was removed as he felt it might be considered "too childish" as he was elevating the target reading age of the Hobbit to match the LOTR as well as matching the stories. I have not checked the current edition of the Hobbit, Christopher might have added it back (especially as it is depicted in Jackson's movie version of the Hobbit).
