Catbirds on Sumac

The young will be fed a steady diet of bugs, caterpillars and other invertebrates.  Adult Gray Catbirds are more opportunistic, even foraging on leftovers from 2014: the persistent fruit of Staghorn Sumac. With daily temperatures dipping into the 30’s and 40’s, insect life is scarce and this native shrub provides an important dietary supplement.
