Getting Hands on in the Hammond: Featured Species

Gray Catbirds

Ever been in the woods, and think you hear a kitty? That may just be the gray catbird tricking you! Gray Catbirds are relatives of mockingbirds and thrashers, and they share that group’s vocal abilities, copying the sounds of other species and stringing them together to make their own song. They are even known to mimic frogs, humans, and machinery sounds as well!
