Backyard Mockingbird

I was trying to see if I could find anything of interest in the backyard. Maybe a Goldfinch or some other migrant.

Instead, our resident Mockingbirds decided it was time for a snack and flew into the Beauty Berries to chow down. This bird let me get within a couple yards without flinching.

Hungry, indeed.

Northern Mockingbird

One of the others in the bush was a bird I banded late last year. Sometimes I take our Mockers for granted but they are lovely birds.
