Some Joplin birds:

We've enjoyed a couple of Gray Catbirds nesting in maple tree in our front 
yard,
Joplin, Jasper County.  I mention them because the nest is up about 11 feet. 
From
my experience their nest is usually down low, two to five feet, and in dense 
shrubs.
Food for young in the nest is being carried by both parents.  The catbirds 
have
allowed all birds to visit the tree without a fuss except for a Blue Jay. 
That jay no
sooner landed when both catbirds were right after it's tail!

Also saw  a Brown Thrasher "flycatching" this morning.  I was impressed.

And the striking mostly-white American Robin, first noticed in early June, 
still graces
some residential yards here in Joplin.

Good birding,  Larry H.  Joplin, Jasper County, MO.
