Gray Catbird

Gray Catbird

 My Bird de jour presentation was on the Gray Catbird. It's latin name is "Dumetella Carolinensis", which stands for "small thornbush-dweller of carolina. The Gray Catbird is mostly but has a black cap, brown patch, and a black tail. Catbirds are very energetic, hopping from bush to bush. They don't like to fly or be in open areas (very private bird), but if they hear a sound, they will check it out. They eat all types of insects and fruit. The Gray Catbird can mimic other birds and even other animals such as a cat. They are of least concern.
