Gray catbirds, Dumetella carolinensis, are nesting near my porch in Brooklyn in New York City. They pop out of the underbrush to investigate any activity on the porch. The catbird’s famous features are the gray body, black cap, and reddish patch under the tail. Visit my blog for a longer story about these birds at Urban Wildlife Guide.
