This bird is named after a cat? Go figure. They say he imitates the mewing of a cat. Come to think of it, I guess maybe they do. I remember years ago at my cabin in Wisconsin, I would wake up on the porch to their songs. Then as over the years, as the habitat changed subtly, they seemed to vanish. I am hearing them all the time now, as I walk along the RR tracks near my house. They are much more vociferous these days. In fact I thought at first that I was listening to a Baltimore Oriole. There a quite a few of them around also, so they are probably mimicking them. Being in the Mockingbird family, that is what they do. Good to have them around!
