Gray Catbirds - Two locations
On Saturday, June 15 Gary Kalyn and I decided to see if we could find any evidence of breeding catbirds in the area of Seabird Island where I had found them two years ago on June 21 2011. Within a minute of arriving we had one. Then this morning on a walk along the dyke of Maria Slough, just north of Cuthbert Rd. another one. The second bird is about eight kms. from the first so no doubt about there being two different birds. These birds are mimics and while I watched, it sang first the call of a Black-headed Grosbeak and then made a perfect Willow Flycatcher call. It cooperated nicely for the camera as well.
