Wildlife Wednesday

A New Bird

New to us, anyway.

Grey Catbird - Stock Photo
Decked out in his grey suit and black fedora.
Too slick and fast to photograph.
He runs like a roadrunner rather than hops like a robin.

Last year we had lots of bluebirds and titmice.
This year it's catbirds and gnatcatchers.
I'm wondering if the mild winter and rainy spring affected their food source ...


  1. I think I have seen these before but really not sure - it is too hot that I haven't even seen that many birds around lately!!

  2. I'm always so excited to see a "new-to-us" bird! That's a good looking bird - I haven't seen one before either. Looks like they live in our mountains in spring and summer, though.

  4. Hmm... I've never heard of either of your new "neighbors". Thanks for sharing!
