Young Mockingbird


This young mockingbird looks like he just enjoyed a bite of the oranges I put out for him and my other feathered friends. He may need some help from Mom and Dad though, looks like he's got a little piece of orange stuck in his beak there.

I've got a ton of these little ones this season. Normally, it's just one family but I've had more than that through to my feeders. You've got some really great shots on your site and your reader engagement proves it.

I hope you have good luck also with the moderation being off. I couldn't do it. Too many spams/day.
