Singing


When I visited the garden on Sunday, this fellow flew right over my head and landed in the tree right next to me.  Then he proceeded to sing a rather happy tune.  I looked it up in my Arizona Birds book and I think it's a Northern Mockingbird.  I was just impressed at how friendly he seemed and not the least bit shy.

I was going to say, that's a mockingbird! It's so amazing to listen to them sing -- the variety of sounds they make. The ones in Florida used to crack me up sometimes. They're so vocally ENERGETIC.

Nice sharp pictures with all the details of the feathers. If s/he lives in or around the garden contact with people is nothing new.

Super shot of this sweet little bird Sharon, of course I had to Google the sounds of the mockingbird to hear what it sounds like also, very pretty .
