Something you don't see very often

Yesterday one of our friendly gray catbirds posed for me. He sat on our shed roof and kept a close eye on me and my camera. Notice his dark cap and long tail.

When he turned to fly away, I managed to catch the underside of his tail. Blurry, but see the rusty orange patch? It's something I never knew the catbirds had until this year.

Interesting, huh?

Taken with my pocket camera, Canon PowerShot Elph 530HS, fully zoomed (12x optical). Cropped, but no other corrections.

  1. Very cool! I enjoy bird watching, but I've never seen a catbird before!
