Gray Catbird, Dumetalla carolinensis

Gray Catbird, Dumetalla carolinensis

Meow, baby. This little guy was hanging out on Lake of the Isles this week. I have been hearing them and even photographed one high in a tree in another location (below). My heart was set on finding one, but he found me! As I was walking up the trail he landed in front of me and I had the good sense to stop and shoot before he took off. He was actually quite tolerant of my approach, I got within ten feet of him!

    Good work, I have yet to see a catbird this spring. Orioles here are going nuts at the orange I put out on my north metro bird station. Now, if only I had that 70-300mm…

    We had a Grey Catbird on our back patio in Rochester, Mn. on May 17th. We did a google search and it brought us to your picture. Great job! John and Lee Fischer
