  1. One of my favorites! We have a catbird lurking around our rental here in Florida – I always enjoy them. He let me see him yesterday! I have one in my garden up North, too – I have lots of insects, grapes, berries (esp Dogwood) for him/her. Once I was treated to a bird bath display – they really are beautiful birds!
