The Gray Catbirds have returned

My front yard was a busy spot this morning. 2 Gray Catbirds came to the birdbath and hung out in the Tangelo Tree.

They’ve actually been here for 2 or 3 weeks, but pretty skittish.


Only one was kind enough to pose for a photo…but as soon as he noticed me …it was gone.


They are beautiful birds and spend a lot of time in and around the yard. They seem to like the birdbath more than the other birds.

I had 1 male Painted Bunting and 1 Greenie at the feeder this morning. No pictures yet…but they are back also. The Titmice, Cardinals, Buntings, and half a dozen doves were flitting about with the Catbirds.


  1. Come to think of it I haven't see the catbirds here in a while. Maybe they have come to your house LOL. Helen

  2. Isn't it great to have the fall/winter birds showing up? The Black Capped Chickadees just showed up today at my home.

  3. The Cat birds are shy! You were able to get a very nice photograph.
    When they are here in my gardens I feed them grape jelly. They really like it!
    I saw Juncos this morning. Autumn is in full swing. Juncos are one of my Winter birds. I bet temperature will be falling soon.
    Always enjoy visiting you.

  4. Nice to see the various birds making their way in. I'm not within sight of my feeders, yet. But so enjoy listening to the Quail all around. Nice capture of the Catbird.

  5. He's certainly noticed you in the second Carol lol
    Good captures.

  6. Ooooh, I hope you capture the painted!


Thanks so much for stopping by. I appreciate the time you take to make a comment......If you ask a question, I will try to answer it here.
