Subject: [cobirds] Gray Catbird, Denver County
I have a late-to-leave Gray Catbird in my yard in east-central Denver, just
off East Colfax about 4 miles from downtown. Definitely a new yard bird,
and a surprise to see around here, even in an unseasonable snowstorm.
I didn't recognize it at first, puffed against the snow and wind. It was
hunkered down with an American Robin and a couple of Euro Starlings in the
blackthorn tree out my kitchen window on the side of the house.
It appeared to be eating some of the blackthorn berries (I've read these
are considered bird food of last resort?). So were the robin and starlings.
The catbird has since flown back and forth to to lilac bushes in the
backyard, where juncos, jays, chickadees and house finches are in abundance
at the feeders this snowy day.
