When I went out to get my newspaper this morning a mocking bird sitting in a tree above the paper tube began whistling at me. I guess it saw something I didn’t see when I looked in the mirror this morning. 🙂 I whistled back and we continued to whistle back and forth until I went back in the house. It made me smile and even giggled as we continued to whistle. What a great way to start my Monday morning.
I have a special way to whistle when calling Chancy and sometimes he can’t tell if it is me or a mocking bird whistling, that is how good those birds are at mimicking. When he can’t tell if it is me or a bird he will look at me and if I don’t say “come” then he knows it is the bird. The bird seems to find pleasure in trying to fool Chancy.
It is rare to see one at the bird feeder. They are usually on the ground or in a tree when I see them. They are fruit eaters and I have fruit in the feeder off and on. I was lucky to capture the picture above sometime back when one was eating fruit at the feeder.
