Disclaimer: Last Photo May Offend
This mockingbird was a surprise visitor to the deck the other day. They seemed to be noisier and friendlier at my old house in the suburbs. These woods do not seem to have many. I don't think that I hear them much...but since they are 'mockingbirds' how do I know? I had scattered some seeds for the little wrens that live under the deck and this fellow showed up to see what all the excitement was about.
The photos are better than I expected since I was taking them through a double paned glass door. I guess cleaning the inside of the window paid off.
Clearly he did not feel there was anything of interest to keep him as he mooned me for a few seconds before flying off. (It seems that everyone is a comedian!)
