Mockingbird; church

We decided to take some photos of St. Peter's today and upon arriving were immediately serenaded by this mockingbird. Well, actually, we weren't being serenaded. He could not have been more indifferent to our presence. Instead, he was showing off for any potential mates who might have been within hearing range. Cardinal songs seem to be a favorite with mockingbirds, and that was the case with this fellow. He did every cardinal song he knew, even the obscure stuff.

I think we have mockingbirds here but none have visited my sanctuary that I am aware of. I hear all kinds of bird calls and can make some myself but not the mockingbird. Maybe they are here and I am thinking Cardinal.

Your photo is dramatic. I like it.
