I lose a cat (Miss Mouse, RIP) and gain a catbird.
This gray catbird has not only built a nest and raised a brood in my Forest Pansy redbud in my small garden, but has decided to hang out and become a summer resident in the garden.
He allows me to get within arm's length before he takes off to a higher branch or the junipers next door. Not normally a visitor at the bird feeders, now that I have added a mixture that includes raisins, he will fly in and get a raisin and then perch contentedly in the redbud.
Soon he'll leave with the other gray catbirds and migrate down to Central America. But for now he joins the two other cats in the household.
