Catbird , I think!!!!???

by Iris Hardig
(Santa Ana California)

I live in Southern California , and have never heard this "bird" before. I have very tall pine trees in the side area of the house / I walked out this morning and heard what sounded like a very very young kitten . Way up in one of the trees I thought it had crawled up and gotton stuck. I looked for an hour and couldn't see anything. It started driving me crazy!. It is a repetitive constant desparate call, mew. mew mew mew mew meuw . When I call to it . It mews. Then stops for a while . Then starts again . Is this, in fact a Catbird??? Wow, I looked for a kitten for 3 hours . I cannot see it although after looking for a long while I saw a squirrel.
