Dumetella carolinensis

The gray catbird, also spelled grey catbird, is a medium-sized northern American perching bird. They are known to attack predators that enter their territory or nest. They will flash their wings and tail and peck at the predator. They also will destroy eggs of the brood parasitic brown-headed cowbird by pecking at the cowbird's eggs.

This species is widespread and generally plentiful, though its reclusive habits often make it seem less common than it actually is. It is not considered threatened by the IUCN due to its large range and numbers. In the United States, this species receives special legal protections under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918.
