Gray Catbird for World Bird Wednesday

I had never believed that a bird could mew like a cat until I had heard one.; then I had finally seen one. I always consider it a delight when one drops by Bird Alley, which this little bird did last week. I wish our cat could really talk to us. I wonder if it hear the Catbird outside? Did it confuse my cat? How really cat sounding is the catbird? I find catbirds intriguing!These birds like to nest in wild rose bushes. We have an old wild rose bush in Bird Alley and that is where I had spied this bird first last week. One year a Catbird nested in our Rosebush, and it played 'King of the Castle' all summer long that season long by mewing all over our garden area while perched on our fence. It was delightful! Maybe it will happen again this summer?! I certainly hope so!

Very nice captures of my favorite mimic, the Gray Catbird!

Of course cat lovers need to have their own bird! It begs the question, why no Dogbird?
Great post!
