Mock, yah, king, yah, Bird, yah…

We have a Northern Mockingbird in the neighborhood that takes up residence in the Bittersweet bush.

He is a great model and knows how to work the light and strike the poses.

This time of year, he gets a bit territorial, this is his Bittersweet bush and a that is the final word. He’s cool with the House Sparrows that hang out and doesn’t mind the Song Sparrow.

However, when a marauding band of European Starlings comes by, he chases them off.

To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my favourite books, but there's no such bird downunder! Now I know what they look like!!! But I didn't realise they were such hams ...

Nice picture - I heard of Mockingbirds the same way Red seems to have - never managed to see one, which is a shame.

Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW - Stewart M - Melbourne.

What a beauty and oh yes, we have one too, which I shall share next week. He is in the Crabapple tree next door though and how he thinks he can handle all of those over ripened fruits, is beyond me;')~
