Gray

The Lensday challenge of the week is gray.

The Gray catbird is normally a secretive bird that stays hidden in thickets and bushes. I usually know there is one in the area only because of its distinctive catlike meow. It is the only North American bird that has a uniform dark gray plumage.

Because they are usually in bushes I was quite fascinated by this guy foraging out in the open, much like an American robin. He/she totally ignored me as the camera clicked away.

Isn't he just lovely...he seems so intelligent; like he has something to say.

I've seen these birds too only in the brush darting around in the shadows. That's wonderful that you got a chance to get photos of them in the wide open.
