About This Image

I discovered this fledgling mockingbird in the hibiscus bushes outside my kitchen window one morning while eating breakfast. He was just learning to fly and the mother bird was watching over him and making occasional deliveries of bugs for his breakfast. I really enjoyed watching him gather the courage to fly from branch to branch.

Thank you. It really was fun watching him. He was in my front yard for several hours, and you could see his courage growing through out the day as he made short little flights from branch to branch.

Look at all that little peach fuzz feathers on his tiny head and back. Boy, you wern't kidding about this being a fledgling. What great fun to be able to observe this little guy. His mom would be proud of his first baby picture you have captured.
