All God's Creatures Sunday

The window behind where my laptop sits on the table is large and wide.  I have a wonderful view of trees and green all around us.  As I've mentioned before, luckily nobody is parked too close to us.  But the fifth-wheel that is in my field of vision has been a very busy place indeed.  I watched for about a week and finally decided that I needed to ask the owners if they were aware of what was going on on the back of their rv.
I didn't know how long they would be staying, and I worried about what would happen to the nest when they did leave.  It's so perfectly placed on the rv ladder with support from the second ladder and the protection of the bicycle in front of it.  It was difficult to get a good picture of it because of all that.
The builders of this beautifully designed home?  The mockingbirds.  We've watched them do some display stuff that was interesting and funny. 
Here, they would hop a little, peck at a bug, and spread their wings. Hop, peck, and spread.

  5. The mockingbirds...fun to watch...they are quite territorial...I have had a family of them rule my yard for over 20 years! They still sing outside my bedroom window in the spring at ALL hours!

  6. I think that's another first for me Lisa. I get worried occasionally these days because I see something and think 'Wow, never seen that before' and then find out that I saw a similar post a year or so ago and have forgotten. But I'm pretty certain this is a first. Thanks again.
