Easy Solutions to Feed Oranges to Your Birds:

3.) Gray Catbirds 

Grey Catbird - This species is named for its cat-like call. Like many members of the Mimidae (most famously mockingbirds), it also mimics the songs of other birds, as well as those of Hylidae (tree frogs), and even mechanical sounds. Because of its well-developed songbird syrinx, it is able to make two sounds at the same time. The alarm call resembles the quiet calls of a male mallard. The catbird makes a terrible sounding scream when you are close. They scare the crud out of me.
