Gray catbird

Everything is awful right now, so here's a picture of a bird.

Gray catbird

Gray catbirds are one of the seasonal visitors to my yard. They eat from the suet feeder, but they tend to stop quickly and quickly retreat back to the bushes.

They do sometimes make cat-like shrieking sounds, but mostly they seem to sing unique songs without repeating a single note. It sounds more like bird song practice than actual singing.

I also posted a version of this on Instagram.
