Pheathers – Monochrome Monday Mockingbird in Snow

Mockingbirds are a favorite of mine. I captured this beauty outside my window today, perched on a branch of the Bald Cypress tree. The beautiful snow is reason enough to gaze out the window, making eye-contact with a mockingbird is an added bonus. Is it possible to develop friendship with birds, moments of real trust? Possibly this morning was an inroad to even better relationships with the backyard flock. I trudged out in the snow to throw a bit of seed on the ground, and into the feeder hoping to give them a few minutes of nourishment before the snow covered my breakfast offering over again.

This Monochrome Monday post is part of Skywatch.

          Yes, Susie…I do. One of the joys of blogging is meeting people from all over the world. Something that would have been hard before the age of technology.


  1. Despite the well-known book by Harper Lee and the song by Carly Simon and James Taylor (the version i like best) i had no idea what a mockingbird looked like – until now! 🙂

    He (she?) looks a little like one of my brown honeyeaters, but a little plumper.

    Lovely photo. 🙂

      The songs the bird sings are some of the sweetest. He can mimic all the backyard birds and often does so, always sitting at the top of a tall tree or pole. Thanks so much.
