I videoed this Summer Tanager and Catbird bathing together in October 2011, and didn't think much about it until someone in Tallahassee photographed a Summer Tanager and Catbird bathing in her bird bath in October, 2012. Maybe they're a couple and are once again passing through Tallahassee on migration, bathing as they go.
UPDATE 10/6/12: I just looked out to see a female Summer Tanager bathing in the water feature--in the same part of the water as the one in the video. What was over in the back on the right? A Catbird!! I do think they are a pair--1 day short of a year to the day when I videoed them last year. We do have a pair of Catbirds, but they are always together. There was only one Catbird today.
