May 21, 2020

Location: Fellsmere, my house

I am known as a Gray Catbird
I wear a little black hat
My song can last up to 10 minutes long
And my calls allegedly sound like a cat.

Note: I say "allegedly" because to be honest, I just don't hear it, but then, having lived with them all my life, I am all too familiar with what cats sound like. Especially at 3 a.m. when they decide they want a snack.
