Northern Mockingbird

I heard Mockingbird singing.

He is back.
He is claiming his territory.
Welcome home.
I missed you.

Oh very nice photos of Mocking bird. On that last one, why is the chest divided? Do you know?


Jayne said...

Haven't seen many mockingbirds this summer, come to think of it. Beautiful photos Sherry!

Dear Nita,
Every day I light a candle for you and John.
Every day I send my blessings.
Mockingbird is my friend.

Hi Karen,
Thank you. Mockingbird sings so sweetly. One of my favorite backyard birds.

Dear Sprite,
I would say it is the angle of the photo that shows the center breast so well. Also I think Mockingbird has just finished his molt and has yet to get all of his warm feathers for winter.
You know how much I love this bird!

Dear Jayne,
Every summer the Mockingbirds leave for a couple of months. I always miss them.
When they return I know it is truely Autumn.

Our mockingbirds stay all year. It's been nice to see their progression through mating season and all the riots they cause :o)

Dear Mary,
Ours leave around July and return in late September. I never know where they go!
They are lovely singers.
