This bird is named after a cat?  Go figure.  They say he imitates the mewing of a cat.  Come to think of it, I guess maybe they do.  I remember years ago at my cabin in Wisconsin, I would wake up on the porch to their songs.  Then as over the years, as the habitat changed subtly, they seemed to vanish.  I am hearing them all the time now, as I walk along the RR tracks near my house.  They are much more vociferous these days.  In fact I thought at first that I was listening to a Baltimore Oriole.  There a quite a few of them around also, so they are probably mimicking them.  Being in the Mockingbird family, that is what they do.  Good to have them around!
