gray catbird

Dumetella carolinensis

Description:

migrating thru High Island, TX. A medium-sized, slender songbird with a long, rounded, black tail and a narrow, straight bill. Catbirds are fairly long legged and have broad, rounded wings.

Habitat:

dense tangles of shrubs, small trees, and vines, along forest edges, streamside thickets, old fields, and fencerows

Notes:

To attract Gray Catbirds, plant shrubs in areas of your yard near young deciduous trees. Catbirds also love fruit, so you can entice them with plantings of native fruit-bearing trees and shrubs such as dogwood, winterberry, and serviceberry.
