GREEN CATBIRD EATING GRAPE

Green catbird, Ailuroedus crassirostris

I found a branch with a lovely bracket fungus to use as a perch at the permanent birdbath we have set up at home. Only a few species of bird came to drink during a wet spell, so I lured catbirds down with half-a-dozen grapes each morning.
