A catbird in the garden

Hello ladies,

Let me introduce you to one of my garden companions: the grey catbird.
As I was taking pictures of roses, a little friend settled on a low perch in front of my camera.
So pleased to make your acquaintance.
How are you, this fine day?
Quite well, thank you.
Then suddenly, I found myself in a musical. The catbird sang to me for a few minutes before taking wing to his next performance.

Such singing deserves a bouquet!

The catbird is a good friend of mine. He seems happy for my presence. He was no more than two feet away when I took the pictures. I could have reached over and pet his head, were that something he fancied. The catbird often follows me around the garden and sings to me.

Happy painting, ladies!


  1. That is just too cute. You kinda remind me of a real life snow white with all the animal pics and things :)

  2. I agree on a Snow White thing!
    You not only look beautiful, you are beautiful underneath your skin, inside your soul. <3

  3. That's a sweet story. Your the flower and fauna whisperer. Have a wonderful holiday. (((hugs)))

  4. I have heard the phrase "being caught in the catbird seat",but never new that an actual catbird existed. He is so cute and adorable!

  5. How sweet! Ive never seen a bird like that before :)

  6. Diana, you have the spirit that just draws beauty and cute animals to you. :D

    And because you are such a beautiful person, I want to give you this award:

  7. It's positively magical how all these lovely creatures flock to you! And I love the photos.

  8. I thought that bird was a statue at first! Its so pretty!

  9. I googled grey catbird and found that he is a member of the mocking bird family. Does he have lots of notes and variations in the music he sings to you?

  10. Hey, I did a post on the Nubar giveaway that I won!'s a link to it:
