Almost wordless Wedesday



As I clicked my seat belt shut, I saw a bird land on the roof of the car next to me. I eased the electric window down and aimed the zoom lens and this is what I got through the passenger window. Have no clue what he/she is.



UPDATE from TexWisGirl... it is a mocking bird and she sent me this link to another blog with more MOCKINGBIRDS

She couldn't just let them be, could she? (-chuckle- I'm reading a rhyming blog and it's catching...)

Good shots- my luck the window would have scared him off~

Really nice capture. Looks like a Mockingbird to me. If you heard it sing you would know. They run through every song they know in one sitting. Delightful birds.
He/She certainly was a ham.

Madi and Mom said...

Excellent shot ...we think it is a mocking bird but we'd have to see the tail to be certain.
Hugs Madi and Mom

Your editing in the last photo is cool. I am either to slow or noisy or perhaps my camera has to long of a delay because I have the hard time getting a photo of birds. I know I can always come to your blog anytime to enjoy your photo's of them. :)

TexWisGirl said...

SweetMarie said...

I thought that was a Mockingbird. I love seeing them chase away Hawks. They're so brave! Great close-up!

Susannah said...

Sandra! What a great catch!!! So that is amocking bird. My sis in SC has them all the time...but this is the first I have seen one. Beautiful bird!!!

ClickNCamera said...

Great shot! We've always had mockingbirds around here mocking us, but I was never really sure what they look like, thanks for sharing. Funny how familiar they look, maybe they are shy?! Enjoy your day!

Michaele said...

Oh that tex is a smart one! Great shots are out there - glad you caught this one.

Auntie sezzzzzz... said...

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Yep, I was going to say Mockingbird. I love to listen to them. Great captures!

Ginny said...

Yes, it is a mockingbird indeed. I was attacked by one going into a mall several years ago. She had a nest over the entrance and was attacking everyone who entered.

Oh great, now I'm going to be singing that song all night long....lol
Great shot and I like the one with the whole flock

SquirrelQueen said...

Yep, like Ann that song is going to be stuck in my brain for awhile.

He is a cute little fellow and looks even better with his "flock".

Betsy Adams said...
