Catbird in the pond.

We have several nesting pairs in the immediate area of our yard.
They regularly come in to eat the grapes and grape jelly that we put out for the orioles.

Dumetella carolinensis

The Gray Catbird belongs to the genus Dumetella, which means “small thicket.” And that’s exactly where you should go look for this little skulker.
