Mockingbird verses 8 Ibises!

I love Mockingbirds…that have so much spunk in a little package. They are very territorial and very protective of “their tree”.   One time, I literally saw a Dr’s office entry rerouted while a news crew filmed people as they attempted to bypass the Mockingbird’s tree.  I have also seen a mockingbird chase and red-tailed hawk.  It remind’s me of the line ‘ah, poo..now what can a little thing like me do to a big thing like you… poo…Ha!, My money is on the little guy.  When I took this picture I didn’t know the Mockingbird was in it.  Pleasant surprise.  I started laughing…because I know that this little guy was counting and thinking –  1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8…yep I can take them on..pretty sure!

    Great picture. Glad you mentioned the mockingbird was in the shot because I didn’t see him. They do protect what is theirs. They dive bomb those bigger birds until the large one gives up and leaves. Very interesting.
