    what do you mean by this?

    You only have a certain amount of time to go back to your post and 'edit" it. I wanted to add my third post into my second post, but the edit clock beat me to it.  And was supposed to say HATE the edit time limit.

    Just for the sake of discussion, is it possible this is a leucistic Gray Catbird?  The dark eyes and tail shape seem like a possible match to these untrained eyes.

    The cap looks grayish... for s Catbird, I would think it should be darker since those feathers have pigment. Plus the under wing pattern looks like a mockingbird(just reversed).

    @The Bird Nuts I agree it is not a Phoebe. As far as a crest goes.. are you talking about the last pic? I am not sure that is a crest or just some windblown or out of place feathers.  Another thing is...in the second pic, it looks like a yellowish eye.

    Just the name of the game this time of year...

    They are year round birds and are not migrating back from Central/South America so they can start early and early nesting is all it is... some birds will have 2 or even 3 clutches (and sometimes even more) if they can. It pays to get started early, just in case something happens and the nest fails. If they are successful... then they have time for the next nest/clutch and so on.That is the goal to keep the species numbers up. 

    If they lose a nest/clutch with enough time left in the season, they will usually attempt a new one as well.

    I've seen Greenies move tree to tree, although I've never seen one chased so their behavior may be different when being harrassed.

    I was taking it as many tree-tree jaunts/flights... I've seen them move between 2 or 3... but not more than that. Doesn't mean it does not happen of course. And I guess the OP could mean chasing, when it was "chasing" but really basically hopping from one tree to another... who knows.

    I am gonna suggest a Green Heron... bright orange legs and feet. They Greenish color sometimes can look gray in the lighting.   



    Sorry, I missed the tree-tree part... a gull will not be landing in a tree at all. Green Herons would probably not be moving tree-tree-tree also. Rock Dove seems a good choice.
