Mocking Bird

As I was eating breakfast this morning, I noticed a mockingbird standing at the sliding glass door leading out to the patio. He was spreading his wings and flapping in a kind of threatening manner, making an "ack" noise like I'd never heard before. I realize that he was probably attempting to ward off his own reflection in the glass. He probably didn't even see me sitting there, coffee mug half way to my mouth. Still, I could not help the feeling that I was being mocked by a mockingbird.


  1. Now that's bed, to be mocked by a mocking bird. I've always enjoyed them and find them to be real actors.

  2. They are such cool birds and I love it when they go through their whole range of songs in one sitting.
    Hope you at least stuck your tongue out at him.

  3. eheheheh... kind of funny name! I will go and read why they called them like that! :-)


I appreciate readers' comments so much. You don't even always have to agree with me.
