It was a very cooperative bird. Called it once and it came.
Natural perch in the forest. A few ugly OOF branches were removed from the background.

Elegant image, Karl. The detail in the plumage is perfect, and the lovely background showcases the Catbird beautifully. Superb.

What a wonderful portrait, Karl. I love the slight head tilt and the plumage detail is beautiful against that pretty background. First Class!
