    I know they're aggressive, but I quite like Mockingbirds - they're such incredible mimics.

  8. First time I ever heard one I was sitting in Jarrell's yard last October and was amazed at the beauty of the song! Good capture, Mike - love the bokeh on this shot.
    Also loved the movie - a classic.
    Cheers, Sandi
