I love these birds! We have a mockingbird alarm clock (the real one who perches on a pole outside our door)...I love coming awake to his song.

You got him- they are pretty birds.

Good bird spotting!

Rose said...

I love your title...and love the shot and what you done with it...and oh, how I wish Harper Lee had written more than one book.

Ebie said...

Just waiting for you to come by and take his pose!

What a beautiful capture!

Hmmm!
Fence score - I will give it 2 out of 10. Still it does possess a rustic charm.
I loved the movie, "To Kill a Mockingbird", but I don't recall seeing a mockingbird in the movie?
So this is the first mockingbird I have ever seen. Somehow I thought they were the size of a crow!
That bird looks the size of a small robin! Thank you for the bird variety lesson.
Horrendeous train trip today into and out of the CBD, but wait for it, it didn't rain, thus the "two legged ferals" were out - ha ha!
They don't like water, it cleans them.

What a great shot! Mockingbirds are such cheeky little birds...they used to give my poor cat fits! They would chase her across the yard, swooping down on her and pecking at her head. She had to slink across the yard, from hiding place to hiding place... it was actually kind of funny to see a cat afraid of a bird! Have a great day!

You have such a great eye you spotted this beautiful view. I do not know if we have a mockingbird here in my area I would love to hear them chirp.

Ohhh nice shot! nice play on words, too =)

Marie said...

I have always loved mockingbirds because they can sing anything! They are neat birds. Great shot.

Emille said...

That's one thing I miss (among others) to wake up by singing and chirping of birds!

I like these birds. Have seen then here in my backyard and photographed a few. To me, they are slower in flight than a Blue Jay but the impression I always have is that it is a sick blue jay. Then I see the white tail feathers along the edges. Mockingbird.

Since I was hacked I had to give up my old user name and the blogs that went with it.

So this is the new birds blog and I hope you can come visit. Birds Birds Birds and Birds

I love that shot, Carletta! The flow of the fence line is great and the Mockingbird adds just the right touch. Very nice!

SquirrelQueen said...

What a cute little fellow. We don't have them here and it's been a long time since I've seen a Mockingbird. I love that old rustic fence, it looks as though it's been around a lot of years.

kaye said...

how cool, I've never actually seen a mockingbird

Dianne said...

great catch!!

Faye said...

This is the one time I'd enjoy some background music of the mockingbird, Carletta. Usually find it hard to concentrate on the photo or post if the music is too much. Glad this fellow was patient enough to wait for you to shoot.

Living Life said...

So cool that you were able to capture the mockingbird sitting on the fence rail!
