WHO'S NEW?

We only moved about 9 miles, just across town, and downward a couple of hundred feet but we have a new bird visiting the old birdbath.


It's a mockingbird and he loves getting into the bath and cooling his feet while he takes a drink or two.

We still see some finches, maybe a warbler or two and, of course, those dopey doves and maybe even a pigeon.

When the weather gets hot, like it's been here for about a week, a fresh, cool birdbath is a very popular spot.

  1. Does your mockingbird sing at night? Ours goes almost 24 hours a day. I enjoy it. Lana not so much.

    1. I haven't heard him but when we lived in Phoenix back in the 70's we had one that used to sing all night during his mating season.

    2. We've got a mockingbird that sings in the evenings. My husband loves it, but sometimes I want to tell it to take a chill pill :)

  3. If I were a bird I'd want to cool my feet in your birdbath.

  5. They can also be pretty mean to cats, I've seen them dive bomb and force one under a car where he stayed for hours.

  8. That birdbath is essential for them in that heat right now.
