GRAY CATBIRD IN LARGE POTTED PLANT & ON CHAIR IN CAFE, NAPLES BOTANICAL GARDEN,NAPLES,FLORIDA, 1/28/2020
Sharon and I were sitting at an outdoor table at the cafe at Naples Botanical Garden sharing a scone and ginger limeaid. All of the sudden a Gray Catbird flew into the large potted plant next to our table. It stayed there for about 10 minutes and then flew onto an empty chair at our table. A short time later it flew onto the ground and picked up a small object with its beak. It probably thought it was food, but it wasn't, so it dropped it and then flew away.
The first six photos show the Grey Catbird in the potted plant. The lastthree photos show the Catbird on the chair.
