Default He brought a friend...

Finally got some decent light this morning. A pair of these mockingbirds showed up and since there wasn't much of anything else to take advantage of the light...

Gary - great shots of a feisty bird! Sharp and clear and perfect color!
Our Mockingbirds are in the midst of "courting" season - maybe you'll have a family to watch in your yard...

Thanks, Mole. I'm hoping they'll just get their fill and move on. They tend to get a little TOO feisty and scare everyone else away.

Just the people who visit you. They'll accept you as part of the scenary, but a visitor might very well get dive bombed.

Very good detail on these Gary, especially the way the light hit the eyes in the last one.
