  2. I saw my first mockingbird today…flitting around the school yard. I was so surprised, I didn’t have time to find my camera, but I’m going to look for it tomorrow, camera in hand =)

    Love the poem!

  3. That’s a really nice picture of a mockingbird, Marg. I didn’t know they were so pretty up close. re: the Haiki: Yep, as much as I like mockingbirds, they used to wake me up at night when I lived out west.

    Great picture Marg followed by a great Haiku Max. I realllly like this one. I can just hear those mockers singing. I have one that is terrorizing the feeder right outside my office window. I wish he/she would move on. She has decided that this is her personal feeder. I haven’t seen the red-breasted nuthatches since she moved in and took over.

  10. @ Marg – no . . THANK YOU and was an honor to allow me to use it!
    @ Rondi – how great to see them! We just don’t have any around here and sometimes wish I did have seen more of them! Hope you get picture of yours that you found!
    @ Linda – didn’t she do great? I also love Max’s Haiku! I use to have a chipping sparrow who would vocalize once an hour each night!
    @ Kathiesbirds – thanks and glad you enjoyed it!
    @ Pam – didn’t they do great! Thanks
    @ Barb – I loved that shot also!
    @ YN-J – She did great!
    @ lvn – for sure! Thanks
    @ Lisa – Both were wonderful and I thought it was perfect to connect together for todays post! It must be great seeing them but give some room for the Red-breasted Nuthatch!

    Ooohs, lovely picture. I haven’t really seen a mockingbird upclose where I live in Asia, Borneo… though we have much hornbills. haha

    I was so excited I forgot to say Great Haiku Max! They do go well together.

    This mocker was quite the model and shortly after this shot was almost eaten by a Coopers Hawk! You can see more by clicking on my Flickr shot for the whole story. (and a crumby shot of the Coopers ;D)

    D-uh just noticed Barb mentioned the Coopers on Flickr didn’t mean to plug it again ;D

    Thanks for all the nice comments on my photo-makes me sing like a mocker-LOL!

    I hope your Red Breasted comes back Lisa-Red Breasted are one of my faves

    @ Mary – thanks and I am so glad I was able to share these with everyone!
    @ Marg – LOL, he did do great! You have just as great of an exciting life as we all do with the birds . . . you should do a guest post on here! Hint hint . . .
    @ Marg – 🙂 you are more than welcome to plug this picture as much as you want! It’s a great story for sure that everyone should see!

  23. Wow that looks so different than the Northern Mockingbirds I see here (SF) – it must’ve been very cold out for it to be so hunkered down and fluffed up! Love the haiku – keep ’em coming!

  24. NatureShutterbug

    So true! Does anyone understand why they sing all day and night? Great photo!

    12 March 2008 at 1:35 am

  25. @ Adam – I bet a few of your species looks a little different than ours! Thanks
    @ NatureShutterbug – Thanks and I think maybe it’s because they are on territory, making sure its neighbors remember not to come into its territory!

  26. wow, now there is a bird I’m almost certain I’ve never seen. Thank you Monarch and Marg for sharing it with me. Very cool. Based upon your really nice poem maybe it’s a good thing? I love the shot btw!

    13 March 2008 at 2:35 am

  27. Beautiful, all three of you!

    13 March 2008 at 7:29 pm

  28. Great bird to make a poem about. They sing so many beautiful songs. Incredible shot!
