The mockingbird was named the state bird of Texas in 1927. It is found in almost every habitat in Texas. Including, but not limited to, my backyard!
The bird is known for copying. Texas rebellion style. “We’ll take the bird that practices the ‘socially unacceptable,’ copying!”
Kids, DON’T do this at school, but if you are a bird, it’s pretty cool!!!
It can mimic the songs of approximately 50 other birds. Pretty amazing.
And………..they are mean little boogers. In a territorial dispute between a Blue Jay and a Mockingbird, not sure who’d I’d take in a bet.
They also have the penchant for driving my “puppinos” crazy! They scare the cute little doggie sweaters right off of them. In the evenings at about 7:00, they make this horrible and scary sound like a pack of dogs growling. Seriously, JUST to mess with my babies! (DIRK) (to the left is Carmen already looking scared)

See, all roads, conversations, subjects, blogs ALL circle back to my babies!!
