Gray Catbird

Another bird seen at Bois-de-l'Île-Bizard Nature Park that I would rarely, if ever see here in the Portland area. I was trying to get descent shots of some "Slate-colored" Dark-eyed Juncos when this Gray Catbird caught my eye. Its gray color sharply contrasted with the colorful autumn leaves of the tree it was perched in.
Again, the dark clouds of the day made for difficult shooting, but this image didn't turn out too bad, though a little soft in focus.
Its rufous under-tail coverts were not very evident, but if I increased the brightness way up, I did see evidence of the color.
