Gray Catbird near a Bird Feeder (2013)

Yes, the Gray Catbird sounds like a cat in “normal” mode.  But, being a relative of mockingbirds, it often imitates others or combines sounds of several species to create its own music.

The one pictured here is typical in its preference for thick growth among the lilacs and its frequent visits to a bird feeder.

This 8.5 inch visitor inhabits Maine in spring and summer, but heads south to winter in the southeast coast of the United States and in the Caribbean.
