Saturday Critters ~ 173 ~

I don't see Mocking Birds during the Winter in my yard.
When I do see them during other seasons, I only see one or two, never a large group.
Tuesday, I saw the first one here in the yard, 
and I had forgotten how easy they are to photograph.

  1. We don't get mocking birds here. They have long tails for that size body. Pretty bird!

  7. Beautiful! I've only ever seen a mockingbird in person once, when I was on vacation. They look a lot like the catbirds we have here.

  14. Debbie, these are gorgeous!
    I especially love the second one.
    It reminds me a bit of the classic "angry bird" photo.
    xo.
