Another from my holiday in Cape Cod last month, this time the Gray Catbird (Dumetella carolinensis). Common in brushy wooded undergrowth, often in damp shaded areas. The only grey East North American bird with overall slaty grey plumage and blackish cap. Forages for insects, berries and invertebrates. The call can be just like a mewing cat. These are real posers - just like our Robins!
Settings: F/5.6 1/800sec -1EV ISO200 AV@700mm tripod

Thank you all so much for your great response to my last two Rose uploads - really appreciated as always Smile

Sylvia, haven't you just captured this wee bird so exquisitely? The lighting, colours and detail are all immaculate, and with that catch of light in the eye....who could ask for anything more?
Regards, Ronnie.
