Mocking bird sounds right.  And they can be pretty territorial too.

Years ago I paddled my kayak a little too close to a nesting osprey on Little Tupper Lake. We had quite a duel. I think I got close enough with my paddle on the fourth dive bomb to call a truce. Memorable day.

I think we may have a winner.

The coloring sounds accurate and mockingbirds are pretty nasty too.

You'd like snipe-hunting. You'd have to travel into Dirt to do it though. The city snipes are oversized and tough.

I had buttermilk biscuits with marmalade at Toutant last Friday to celebrate our anniversary and yeah... those things are worthy of their own national holiday. I need to learn how to make them right and not just chuck the Pillsbury ones in the oven...

I’ve been inspired to share by @PASabreFan‘s aborvitae saga...not nearly as cool but to someone who has never seen a rabbit’s nest...I’ve had one of these before that didn’t have a happy ending. These guys were in my strawberry garden. Baby rabbits get left in the nest all day until the mother returns at night to nurse. Two days after this they were gone and the nest filled in. No dead bodies like the last time. I’m having faith that they survived. Next comes the Cooper’s hawk and all the foxes we have around here.

Good stuff, Ogre. As for the baby birds, they are gone. I have empty nest syndrome. I wonder if they will remember that a superior intelligent being was watching them from above — while they are in the Carolinas for the winter and I am having chest pains shoveling snow.

I don't know if they'll remember that one, but they'll certainly remember the inferior drooling goof who constantly stared at them and ran to the computer to post about them.😀

And then when they're down this way, they'll convince my mockingbirds to take their attacks to a new level, finally eliminating that other message board fool.

I thought you were the one watching them from above.

For some reason, Spotify suggested a Yacht Rock playlist while I was at work today. I have never felt more alive.

...but you forgot Christopher Cross whose "Sailing" is probably one of the inspirations for the name.

I thought Loggins only appeared on the 80s movie music playlist.
