I've seen the Gray Catbird in the US, but although eBird says they are sometimes found here in Haiti, I haven't seen one here. I wrote a cinquain about the Gray Catbird, and since it's so short, you'll have time to click on a couple of my other Birdtober posts from the week! (I especially like my cuckoos from yesterday, and I'm sorry they landed on a Thursday, when hardly anybody reads my blog!)

Grey, black beret,
Perches at top of tree,
Meowing like a marooned cat
You can see links to the birds from the first week of Birdtober here.
On Saturday I wrote about the Great Blue Heron here.
On Sunday it was the Grebe family here.
On Monday I posted a poem about the Dickcissel here.
On Tuesday I wrote about Canada Geese.
On Wednesday I posted a Fox Sparrow haiku here.
And on Thursday there were TWO cuckoo poems here - I wrote about the Hispaniolan Lizard-Cuckoo and the Smooth-billed Ani, plus shared a song from Mexico about the Smooth-billed Ani! A bonanza of cuckoos.
Bridget is hosting today's roundup. I'm excited to have a poem in her new anthology - head on over there to read what it's all about!
