“I’ve never seen more…” has been a recurring theme this spring and today’s example of that is the Gray Catbird. You can’t walk fifty feet at the Celery Bog right now without running into one and they’re all simultaneously competing for best mimic on the block. I heard one bird doing a cardinal, a nighthawk, R2D2, and a House Wren! I walked up to this particular individual and I was talking to him the whole time, Can I take your picture? Don’t you move. Hold still buddy. He was mesmerized by the smooth sound of my voice. Sadly, after only thirty seconds of listening to me talk, he had become gooder at english than me! Super smart bird, the Gray Catbird, and fascinating and entertaining to listen to.
