For the last few days, during my morning walks, I have been treated to several Mockingbirds doing their thing. They sing from above me on the telephone wires; they sing in the trees; they sing from the mailboxes. It’s great to stand and watch them go through their repertoire and it seems to vary each time. I’ve got to say that this is probably one of my favorite songbirds. Maybe because it is a combination of all of the songbirds!
One of my wife’s friends calls it ‘The Devil Bird’ because of its habit of singing on nights with a full moon. One could say that she is not fond of the late night shows that this bird tends to give. She wants it, and the crickets, to be quiet and sleep when it is dark! I sincerely doubt that she’ll get her wish!
