Grey Catbird: Kennebunk, Maine, USA, May 2022 — The catbirds have come. We had at least 2, maybe 3, in the yard, yesterday. They love the suet, though they are poorly adapted to take advantage of it. They can’t “cling on” the way woodpeckers do, and they can’t get through the out cage the way the chickadees, nuthatches, and pine warblers do, so they kind of hover under the suet cage and grab a bite. I have a video which I posted (with a Native American Flute accompaniment) on Facebook and Youtube yesterday. 🙂 I will link it here. Such a handsome bird. Sony Rx10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Processed in Pixelmator Photo and Apple Photos. ISO 500 @ f4 @ 1/500th.
