Baby Mockingbird

This little guy got stuck in our cedar tree for several hours. His mom was not happy with me for getting so close! She made sure he was safe and fed during his time in the tree. He finally was brave enough to fly back to the nest behind our fence!

In other news, the baby bluebirds froze to death the last week in April during a cold snap. The mom and dad removed them from the nest, and I found them in the back yard the next morning. It was terribly sad. I'm hoping another pair will nest in the box soon.


  1. That is very sad about the bluebirds.

  2. I was super sad about the bluebirds. So far, no other birds have tried to nest in the box, but I'm hopeful! I can't wait to hear more about the nests in your yard.
