Meeow is one of the calls of this beautiful, mimic, Thrush called the Gray Catbird. The meeow call is an alarm call.
While camped at Lake Louisa State Park, I enjoyed watching and photographing these Gray Catbirds as they flitted around our site. There were at least ten, if not more. One morning while having coffee, we observed them eating flowers off the shrubs surrounding the site. I saw my first Gray Catbird on April 3, 1993. (All photos taken using my Canon 70D with Tamron 600m zoom lens.)

Beautiful bird! Great photos!
Thanks Lea. We are heading to Mississippi in a few days to visit family. Please order warmer temperatures for our visit! 🙂 Nice to hear from you.
Lovely photos, Sheila. Catbirds are one of my favourites!
Hi Charlotte, great to hear from you. I have been following your birding adventures! I don’t get to see the Catbird at home in Colorado, but I sure do enjoy seeing it in Florida! I could sit for hours just watching these birds. Thank you, I am glad you enjoyed my photos! 🙂
Sheila, great photographs. I don’t think I have seen a catbird before. Your posts are always so informative, I always learn an interesting tidbit about my feathered friends. Thanks for sharing and stay warm!
Hi Janell, I love that you enjoy learning a little about the birds. It does make it a little more fun. Hope you are doing well and creating many beautiful art pieces!
