Yesterday we were looking out the windows in the kitchen. Russell & Victoria were talking about seeing lots of birds in the tree there earlier. Blackbirds of some kind.

Then one appeared through the branches of the tree, and hopped down sort of and then flew away. It was a Gray Catbird. First Sighting of one!

I know what they are, but had never witnessed one anywhere, least here. So that was a nice thing for yesterday.

Otherwise my daughter had said she saw a bird with a crest and a black “mask” but nothing seems to exist in that description with the other parameters she gave me. I hope to see whatever it is she saw, one of these days.
