Listen to the Mockingbird


This little bird was standing on this sign singing his heart out when I was parking my car, so I just had to get a picture even if it was through the wind shield. The mockingbird is Florida's state bird. Linking up with Wild Bird Wednesday.

An excellent photo Lois, you captured him in full action twittering.

They can be quite aggressive, but I do like their song. :)

Hi Lois, I'm very happy that I can meet you.
In the early 19th century, my grandfather's older brothers also emigrated to the USA. My grandfather was too small so he was. Therefore, I also live here still. I do not know what happened to the brothers grandfather, where this family.
I read that in Tallahassee 1.5% of the population declares Polish origin. And if anyone of you speak Polish?
Best wishes :)

While at Ohio State in Choir we sang a song about the Mocking Bird. I can always hear that lovely tune in my head when I see a Mocking Bird.

Another good reason to keep your camera on the passenger seat while driving around. Nice one.

They are a great sounding bird - and I saw my first one recently on a trip to Arizona - and I thought they looked OK as well!
