Gray Catbird

Appearing in wooded areas, this medium-sized songbird occupies the underbrush, feeding on berries and insects. The Catbird, sporting slate gray plumage, has a slow warbling song that is varied and hoarse including higher notes, chips and squeaks. Most likely to be recognized by its distinctive call, the Catbird lives up to its name with its clear, catlike mewing: mwee and meeurr.
