In This Corner We Have…

Things were ’bout to become interesting.Β 

On the left we have the Northern Mockingbird, and the European Starling on the right.

The opponents size up the competition.

The mockingbird slanders the starling's mother...

Thanks for visiting and leaving your comments during the interruption of our regularly-scheduled program. I’ve missed keeping up with your posts; it’s good to be home. I found a few new things around the backyard upon my return, and will be sharing them with you over the next few days.Β

  1. So funny Patti! Love your sense of funny.. πŸ˜† I didn’t think those bigger birds could get in those cage feeders. I thought the idea was they don’t get in and the little guys do. We looked at one of those to put mealworms in but we were afraid the Tanagers woudn’t be able to get in. But the Tanagers and Orioles are so addicted to their grape jelly I don’t think they would even care! Those really are some great pictures Patti and that starling and his stand up do is priceless.. πŸ™‚

    • They sing all day and half the night, Arindam. They don’t just mock other birds, but many other outdoor sounds, too. Everyone needs a mockingbird! I’m trying to get caught up on housework and yard work…weeds do not take a vacation! Have a blessed week.
