Ah, how I wish I took this picture......but, alas, I didn't. However this little guy (captured in full-throttle-aria) does resemble *my* Mockingbird. After an absence of a month or so (due to our wet and cold May), he has returned! And he appears to making up for lost time by singing non-stop! Oh Yes! The other day, I was climbing the hill to my house (yes, I live on one of those SF hills).. and suddenly, Mr. Mockingbird was on a telephone pole wire right above me. I stopped, put down my packages and just listened....(cos I didn't have my camera with me).... he sang (at least) 30 different varieties of birdsong....
I come home late at night after working "The Ring"...jump into bed, my head full of Wagner Arias, and fall asleep for two or three hours and then.....the Mockingbird decides I have had enough sleep and begins singing for me! (At least I feel that way because his favourite 3:00 a.m. spot - is right outside my bedroom window!
This is not *my Mocker*.....but...his repertoire sounds very like.... and looking at the title of this YouTube video.... I guess *my* bird is looking for a mate!
Here's hoping he finds one! ♥ To Love ♥
I hope you enjoy.....think of me tonight - at 3:00 a.m.! HAW!
