Catbird


Believe it or not, I know my cats just from their meow.
Yep, all of them!  They all sound different, just like human's
voices sound different!  So when I heard a funny meow outside that
sounded kind of like a kitten but kind of not, I knew it was a catbird!
And sure enough, there he was!  I wonder what the cats thought. haha.

  1. A catbird? I have a magpie nearby who imitates cellphone rings. He fooled me for a while until I saw him doing his impersonations in a nearby tree. You would be surprised at the number of people he catches out as the pass by.

  2. I've heard of Cowbirds but never catbirds.
    I bet a lot of people get fooled.

  4. Incredible on two counts . . . you being able to differentiate all your cat meows . . . and the bird doing a cat call (I mean meow) to you . . . :) Never heard a bird do that . . .

  5. I just listened to a catbird's call on YouTube. Very cool.
    Aw! I think it's sweet you know all your kitties' voices. I bet they make quite the sound if several are gathered together. A Kitty Choir!

  8. Well, you have very highly attuned ears that I'm sure served you well as your boys were growing up too. I've never heard a catbird but we had a fox once that sounded like a baby crying or a cat getting ready to fight. Sometimes things aren't what they sound like. Enjoy your day!

  12. What a pretty birdie. We had a cocker spaniel who thought he was a bird dog. She was always barking at the birds and did catch one every now and then!!
