    What is cat calling?

    When guys hang out on the streets and whistle at girls go by is that cat calling?

    In slang terms, yes. Wolf-whistling and carrying on is generally considered cat calling. In a more formal sense (Merriam Webster), cat calling refers to yelling or chanting in disapproval, particularly at sports events.

    An example would be construction workers making lewd comments at women as they walk by their work site.

    Yes, that is a form of "cat calling" in addition to shouting out things like; "Can I go?" or some other flirtatious pickup line to a strange woman who is walking or driving by to get a reaction from her.
    In part these guys are entertaining each other or making one another laugh. Rarely do they run up to the woman and actually try to start a conversation. They also really don't expect the woman to show interest in them. The men are just goofing around.
