Sharing a Mockingbird taken fro my deck with the Saturday’s Critters challenge. I snapped this photo awhile back on my deck by accident. I was looking at bluebirds and this mockingbird perched on the corner of the deck. Rare to get a photo on my deck since the birds tend to fly away so quickly, unless I have my tripod setup.
This bird’s famous song, with its varied repetitions and artful imitations, is heard all day during nesting season (and often all night as well). Very common in towns and cities, especially in southern areas, the Mockingbird often seeks insects on open lawns.
They are amazing as they can sound like any bird they have heard before. Hence their name, the Mockingbird.
Have you seen the Mockingbird before?
