Gray catbird

Dumetella carolinensis


Gray catbirds are relatives of mockingbirds and thrashers, and they share that group’s vocal abilities, copying the sounds of other species and stringing them together to make their own song

Thanks, Jeannette. They are common here in North Carolina but I usually see them most in the spring and summer.
