Gray Catbirds are relatives of mockingbirds and thrashers. This amazing bird is named for his catty mew, but the basis for his unique jazz vocal styling may surprise you. The Gray Catbird has unusual anatomy that allows both sides of his vocal organs to operate independently. This literally gives him two voices at the same time.
His vocal versatility gives him away, and he is easily tracked by his song into thickets, forest clearings and fence rows. He eats mainly insects and small fruits and is found from central to eastern North America.
