I don't know your particular corner, Scott, but generally speaking, suburban
environments make excellent catbird habitat; they are quite common in the
suburbs back east. Mostly they need the cover of dense shrubbery, which
presumably is available somewhere in the neighborhood. It seems quite
possible that they'd breed in Yakima, unless the local/regional population
is greatly different from eastern populations.
