Wild Bird Wednesday

'Are you looking at me?'
Not sure if he was shy or making a statement.  :)

Maybe just camera shy! Great shots, Carletta.

LOL! I think you got "dissed"! Fantastic shots!

Well, the things you learn.
I loved the movie "To Kill A Mockingbird", but had no idea what the bird looked like. We don't have mocking birds in Australia, well not the "feathered variety" -ha ha.
I think if I did see one of these birds on trips to the US, I probably thought it was a "sparrow".
Many thanks for the "bird" lesson.
Cheers

Presently sunny, like yesterday morning. But OMG, thankfully I got home from Toowong before the heavens and hell opened up.It bucked down and then sunny for the rest of the afternoon!!! Weird.

Mimi said...

Ha ha! He probably knew you'd put him on your blog!
I didn't know what a mockingbird looked like either until now.
Thanks for sharing these lovely photos Carletta.
