Welcome to day 47 of 365 photos…Thank goodness this Northern Mockingbird was sitting in a tree at the hotel, because it is the only photo that I took today. There was a tiny bit of clear sky this morning as we were getting ready to leave Charleston, SC, where we had spent last night. From the time we left to the time we arrived home, there was rain – LOTS of rain. That equated to “no more photos today”. I like the mockingbird even if he is sometimes a bully bird.
Camera: Canon SX 50 HS
Focal Length: 110mm – Aperture: f/5.6 – Shutter Speed: 1/200 second – ISO: 80
A bit about the Northern Mockingbird from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology: “If you’ve been hearing an endless string of 10 or 15 different birds singing outside your house, you might have a Northern Mockingbird in your yard. These slender-bodied gray birds apparently pour all their color into their personalities. They sing almost endlessly, even sometimes at night, and they flagrantly harass birds that intrude on their territories, flying slowly around them or prancing toward them, legs extended, flaunting their bright white wing patches.”
