Abstract

We report a Gray Catbird (Dumetella carolinensis) laying eggs in a nest built and used by conspecifics the preceding year. The nest failed in both years during the incubation stage. A Gray Catbird built a nest in the same patch of shrubs later in the second year and successfully fledged young. Although passerines reusing nests have been documented previously, this is the first report for a Gray Catbird.
