Catbird

We have a low lying birdbath in the front garden, which robins often visit as we sit in our little front porch. So it was that on Saturday morning I set my camera on a tripod and sat by it reading and waiting until the birdies came around to splash. Would you believe that not one single bird came by in o so many hours that day? Well, I lie, the exotic and rare catbird did stop by. He was just hopping and not flying that day.

Looking for a tasty morsel perhaps? Maybe just a drink...

Our neighborhood cats often visit our birdbaths as well. Your catbird is very handsome!! I like those flowers A.C., what are they?
Oh nice photo by the way but I expect that from you!!

Great photo--and the cat looks quite self-satisfied.

Quite a unique non-flying catbird you captured, AC.

That looks so idyllic and photoworthy that I have to ask if it's a stuffed catbird

Another great photograph. The settings you come up with would make wonderful watercolors paintings.

Very statuesque. Lovely shot.

That looks weird. How is it spelled, anyway. Off to look it up.

That would indeed explain the lack of feathered friends. She sure is a beauty, though.
