Photo Share: Northern Mockingbird




Pardon me, I'm celebrating! http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S30170694 You are welcome to use any of the pictures. - Lynn
I saw this bird twice today. The second time I was lucky enough to have a camera in my hand. At first I thought it might have been a catbird, but the white bands under the wings vetoed that. Then I thought some kind of flycatcher, due to tail-flipping. All traits observed match a Northern Mockingbird. It may have been young, a little fuzzy around head.

Thank you Lynn for sharing your photos! If anyone else would like to share a photograph of nature send it to bloubird@gmail.com with a description and permission to post it on the Friday Photo.
