I so love watching my catbird perched in the cherry tree. He's quite tame actually, following me around the yard when I'm gardening, meowing at me when I'm near his favorite tree. Hmmmmmmm, maybe not as tame as I thought; just worried I'll steal his berries!

  1. I've always heard of "sitting in the catbird seat" but have never seen or heard one. Lovely muted palette for this painting :)

  2. Thanks Rhonda. They are a good sized bird, about like a robin and they do sound just like a cat. This guy follows me all over the yard. They're tough to paint because there is no variation in color except for the rust coloring under the tail. So I really appreciate your compliment!
