Nature Notes: Catbirds + Gardens
My flowers-instead-of-grass front
lawn meadow is doing nicely. I believe the last time my husband mowed the front lawn was two years ago? Three?
In our backyard, the raspberries are beginning to appear. This makes our yard even more inviting for the birds.
About two weeks ago the catbirds showed up again in our backyard. They seem to love resting on my tomato plant holders.
Do catbirds like hydrangea? I like this white flowering shrub, even if they don’t notice.
Unlike other birds, such as the cardinals in the winter, the catbirds don’t seem to mind when I get up close with my camera.
I think this catbird is about to take off. They make such endearing sounds, like a meowing kitten.
