Look at that eye! Really not liking me and my camera clicking away. They are characters Northern Mockingbirds.
They mimic other birds. There’s one in my neighborhood that mimics a car alarm. Really!
They’re fiercely territorial. I’ve witnessed a Northern Mockingbird dive-bombing a cat trying to nap in the sun more times than I care to count. The cat just flinched and went back to its nap. REALLY? Why didn’t the cat strike out and eat that bird? Cats eat birds! The Northern Mockingbird must have more power than a cat!
When this one grew tired of my clicking it flew away. Leaving me nothing to photograph. Sigh. It’s a cunning bird for sure!
