This bird first visited our backyard on May 28, 2020. We hope he will return and we can get more pictures. Before that day we only saw it once before on a bird field trip. CJ was intrigued so he had already looked up information on the bird and recognized it right away. Abby took these pictures but not necessarily on purpose. We were looking for what we thought might be a Great-Crested Flycatcher fledge when she thought she saw something on the side. She managed to get a few frames before it left. As of August 2020, we have caught just a few subsequent looks at the Catbird. Usually, we see the orange underside and in seconds its gone.
ALL PICTURES ON THIS SITE WERE TAKEN ONLY BY ABBY, CJ OR ME. WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE PHOTOS ON THE BIRDING FIELD TRIP PAGE, ALL PICTURES HAVE ALL BEEN TAKEN IN OUR URBAN BACKYARD/TREES, OR IN THE SKY AND TREES ABOVE OUR HOUSE/NEIGHBORHOOD FROM 2018 TO THE PRESENT. WE ARE USUALLY BIRDING EVERYDAY BUT ARE ALSO USUALLY BEHIND UPLOADING PICTURES.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE INFORMATION ABOUT A SPECIFIC PICTURE PLEASE EMAIL US. COGENTLY, IF WE HAVE ERRONEOUSLY MISLABELED A PICTURE PLEASE BRING IT TO OUR ATTENTION.
