Working from home these days creates opportunities in finding new visitors in the backyard such as this Norther Mockingbird who showed up on my backyard cherry tree this morning. It kept on looking at the feeder where two Cardinals were busy eating at that time. Not sure if it eventually landed on the feeder or not. A new backyard bird for me.

 I’ve never seen a Mockingbird in the backyard either. As your #1 backyard sighting of a Mockingbird, how long did it linger to mock the cardinals? Did it immediately fly off at Mock-1.

 As another passing thought … if it could fly off at Mach-1 would it still have any feathers remaining? Would it be a cooked bird? Would that be considered …. mocking a jet in self-immolation.
