Photos from Florida's Capital City (and occasionally a few from other interesting places I have been fortunate enough to visit in my travels!)

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 :)
Gorgeous shot, Lois!
I didn't know that the mockingbird is Florida's state bird, thanks for the information :)
I love catching birds as they are just singing their hearts out.
How sweet! Singing his heart out.
A perfect shot, with an incredible blue background!
I can almost hear it singing! Great catch.
Pretty but unfortunately there is no soundtrack! ;-)
This is a really well-composed photo and you caught the avian in a full-throated pose!
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.
Striking looking bird!
I always love to hear them!
Another good reason to keep your camera on the passenger seat while driving around. Nice one.
What a cute birdie! Great picture Lois!
awwwww! and now i have a hankering to watch to kill a mocking bird!
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!
