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.
Thank you, Janet. The Ibises were definitely keeping an eye on it.
