Northern Mockingbird (Mimus polyglottos)
While Kevin did his workout with his friends, I took a little stroll with my camera through the neighborhood this morning. It was very rewarding. In early morning, our roofs were covered in a thin layer of frost. But once the Sun came above the horizon, it warmed up very nicely. The Waning Gibbous Moon was still high in the sky. And the birds sang their songs about frosty Autumn nights.
When I refill the bird feeders, our felines love to watch and see, if there are any feathered friends visiting our yard outside. Once the birds show up, it is “Cat Food Network”. I love it, when our cats speak the bird’s and critters language. It is so adorable. Today, Ozzy sat by the patio door and chattered with the House Sparrows and the Blue Jays.
At this time of the year, the berries have ripened on the Chinese Tallow trees. The White-winged Doves go crazy for these berries. Every time, I’m in the backyard, I hear a lot of wing flapping in the neighbor’s tree across the alley. There are at least two dozen White-winged Doves sitting in the Chinese Tallow tree. And each dove keeps picking these delicious fruits until the tree is empty.
