Last evening while sitting outside cooking our supper on an open fire we were honored with the presence of not one but two Gray Catbirds. This was a pleasant surprise and we were delighted to watch as they kept going into the barberry shrub and realized they were building a nest there.
Did you know the Gray Catbird is of the Mockingbird family? Its call actually sounds like a cat and it can last for ten minutes! Catbirds do mimic other birds, as does the Mockingbird, stringing them together to make their own song.
I was able to capture a few photos I’d love to share with you. Reminder - clicking on a photo will bring it up in larger view.
Thank you for stopping by, do come back again soon. Enjoy your day!
