From late May-July 2007, we located and monitored the nests of seven species known to breed in edge habitat: Tree Swallow (Tachycineta bicolor), Eastern Bluebird (Sialia sialis), Gray Catbird
(Dumetella carolinensis), Brown Thrasher (Toxostoma rufum), Yellow Warbler (Dendroica petechia), Northern Cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis), and Red-winged Blackbird (Yasukawa and Searcy 1995, Imbeau et al.
Northern cardinal, gray catbird
(Dumetella carolinensis), American robin, and blue jay (Cyanocitta cristata) accounted for 64% of the identifications.

In this study we examine the leukocyte counts of gray catbirds
(Dumetella carolinensis) infected with eastern equine encephalomyelitis virus (EEEV).
Previous studies confirmed that the death of baby gray catbirds
in the Washington suburbs were 80 per cent caused by predators, of which 47 per cent were cats; because of the feline's domestication, they have few natural predators to reduce the cat population.
