Gray Catbird, Blue-headed Vireo

The majority of the time, I go birding alone. Today however, my four year old son tagged along and it was great to have his company. Four year old's ask the best questions and are incredibly observant. He actually called out a sparrow that I didn't even notice was there! (he goes around phishing just like I do)

We got to see and hear five Gray Catbirds (he gets a kick out of their name and even more out of how they sound) and a Blue-headed Vireo. I don't often see Blue-headed Vireos, but it was funny because once we got home, there were two right in the backyard! I feel like in the second picture, it was sticking its head right out at me so that it was very clear what kind of bird it is.
