Gray Catbird – DE

IMG_0992 Grey Catbird – Dumetella carolinensis

I took these two pictures while hiking in White Clay Creek Park this spring. While I could hear birds all around me, few were willing to be photographed. I did IMG_1001take several of this bird. I have a cat bird that frequents the backyard but neither picture was taken in the backyard.

Sometimes this bird is called the Slate-colored mocking bird. Its eggs are a brilliant blue. Even bluer than a robin’s egg!
