Don’t mistake for a cat in the bushes

The Gray Catbirds in the backyard don’t seem to have any interest in the bird feeders but prefer to forage for insects while keeping to themselves most of the time hidden away in the dense foliage. The only way you know they are there are from their distinctive cat-like cry, hence the name. On this particularly dark and overcast day the Catbirds came out of hiding and, surprisingly, the camera was at hand.

    Great photos. The Catbirds are vociferous this evening even after sun down. Love the photo of the one cocking its head.
