Gray Catbird, October 18, 2017

Wild Bird Wednesday, Wednesday Around The World, and I'd Rather B Birdin'

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, October 9, 2017
Gray Catbirds, Dumetella carolinensis, are relatives of Mockingbirds and Thrashers. Look for them in dense shrubs and thickets of young trees in the east and central parts of the United States and in southern Canada. In the Winter months they migrate to the coastal regions of the United States, Central America, and the Caribbean islands. Their primary food sources are insects and wild berries, though they have been known to feast on cultivated fruit such as grapes and strawberries.

Have a wonderful day!

  1. Great picture of the catbird. Thanks for sharing it.

  2. ...I can see how it gets its name.

  3. Hello, great capture of the Catbird. They seem shy around me and do not want their photo taken. Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!

  4. Lea, thank you for the suggestion to post a link of my picture of a Black Vulture on Wild Bird Wednesday. What an interesting site.

  5. I don't think I've ever seen a Catbird so I really enjoyed seeing your photo of one. We used to see Mockingbirds quite often although not so much anymore, not sure why.


I enjoy your comments!

Thank you for visiting!
