Here is your black, white or gray fact of the day. As I left the house this morning, I heard a gray catbird in the bushes. Like mockingbirds, they are mimics and go through a repertoire of different bird sounds. Their namesake comes from the very cat-like call they often make. I was leading a nature walk once and pointed one out to the group while it was doing the cat meow. A lady who was with me had a major lightbulb moment and exclaimed "THAT'S what it was!" She went on to explain that she had spent HOURS trying to coax a feral cat that she heard to come out of hiding not realizing that it was a bird the whole time! #blackwhitegray #birds #graycatbird #natureclub
