Gray catbird at Meadowlark Gardens
Saw this gray catbird while walking around one of the ponds at Meadowlark Gardens in Vienna, VA. They get their name from A) being gray, and B) making a distinctive "meow" call when not imitating other birds. Yes, they can do the mockingbird-like thing as well.

Oh yes, the gray catbird was a major factor in us not having red raspberries for our cereal. He thought the patch was his! The brown thrasher, Cardinal, song sparrow and Robin helped deplete any he didn't get.
