A robin and a ???
Posted By: SouthShoreRob, 05-11-2008, 03:08 PM

Sat out while the kids played in the backyard yesterday. Got this nice robin shot when it settled on a branch nearly overhead. Shortly thereafter heard a little peep peep noise coming from the underbrush. In spite of the difficult lighting, I snapped a bunch of this little grey guy which I can honestly say, I've never had in the viewfinder.

My first (and only) uneducated guess is that it's an immature robin who hasn't grown into his customary colours...but that's just a wild guess.

Could I get a more experienced viewpoint, please?


Oh, by the way, Pentax K10D with FA* 200mm

Adult Gray Catbird

Your bird on the ground is an adult Gray Catbird.

Here is a link to an image for comparison. I would post the image here but it is clearly copyrighted.

Thanks pal. I knew someone would know better than I. Interesting little bird, let me say. And for what it's worth, they must hide out in the brush most of the time b/c I've lived here since '98 and not once caught a glimpse of this species.

Hopefully, with patience, I'll get an even better shot at some point.
