Who’s That Meowing In The Tree?

I’ve heard the term “catbird” but never realized they actually sounded like cats.

Day 158 / 365

I thought there was a kitty cat stuck in the tree, but that bird definitely tricked me.     🙂

Interesting Fact: Their calls include the catlike meow call that gives them their name. Gray Catbirds are able to recognize their own eggs making them less susceptible to brood parasites such as the Brown-headed Cowbird.( http://identify.whatbird.com/obj/557/overview/Gray_Catbird.aspx )

  1. I love catbirds! I haven’t seen any around here in years, but all of the sudden this year, I’ve been spotting them. I hope they’re making a comeback. 🙂
