Your Mockingbird is a beauty Phyllis. Can I also say many thanks for your very kind remarks about my sons wedding. It really was a very proud day for me.

Love your Mockingbirds Phyllis!
I put out orange halves which I push on nails I have hammered into a two by six board to attract Baltimore orioles in the spring. This is not only a ugly feeder but a dangerous one to boot!

I really enjoy Mockingbirds whenever I get to see them. They don't visit my yard but I get to see them here and there in town and it's always a treat. Did your Mocker sing for you Phyllis?

phylliso said...

Nice shots of the Mockingbird. I see them down in the valley, but I've never seen a Mockingbird up on our ridge.
