Gray Catbird

Dumetella carolinensis

Normally absent from the southwestern corner of the USA, these birds breed over most of the lower forty-eight and into southern Canada. Winters are spent on the Atlantic Seaboard south from New England and around the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean.

This member of the thrasher clan can, like its cousins, mimic other bird’s songs and incorporate them into their own vocal offerings.
