Mockingbirds Beginning to Display

I posted earlier this week about the beginnings of the spring mating season. At that time, the mockingbirds were still quiet. The next afternoon I was going into Chase Bank Tower and a mockingbird flew by me and displayed in the tree in front of the building.

I love to listen to the mockingbirds. The males have to be exhausted by the end of the breeding season between the constant singing and displays, chasing intruders from their territory and fetching food.

Good birding!
