    CatBird

    My bird blind is named the 'CatBird House', and my chair is named the 'CatBird Seat'.

    When my chores are done, I like to sit out here.

    I was lucky and had an outdoor job for 30 years, still prefer that.




    Who should show up today --> a Catbird.

    That is not common or rare.

    I always have one about the yard, but mostly hear and not see. They tease me sounding like a cat in distress. I hate that! They can also mimic other birds quite well.




    I see one from time to time.

    I have never seen one at a feeder.

    I don't recall having seen one in my water things, but often in the bushes around them.

    One is kinda lucky seeing them at all as they stay in the shrubs.




    Snapped these photos just now. I don't have great gear or use a tripod, but I think most times my photos are good enough to ID a bird and maybe help others who may not have the time to sit on their ass and enjoy critters.

    Great photos of the Catbird! It is fun to listen to their jibber jabber mimics of other birds usually ending with a cat meow.
