Catbird fun

I drove down from Alpine and unloaded the mulch. Am feeling better than I have for several weeks. Vertigo almost gone. After I hauled a couple loads of water I actually had enough energy left to play a while. My idea of play is to photograph birds. I located a Gray Catbird, to my delight, but couldn't decide how I wanted it to pose. I tried it by the water, but that was too far away. I wanted something closer.

So I tried it in a bush, but couldn't get a clear shot without the bush blocking part of the image.

I tried to coax it up onto a rock, but a Curve-billed Thrasher kept stealing the show.

Finally, I gave up and let it do what it wanted to do... forage in the mulch.
