Mockingbirds, November 18, 2017

Saturday's Critters, Camera Critters, and I'd Rather B Birdin'

Tupelo, Mississippi, October 12, 2017
I am not sure what was going on between these two Mockingbirds. One would advance, and the other one would retreat.

Then the second one advanced and the first one retreated.

One turned away for a minute, and I thought he was leaving.

Then he turned and advanced towards to other bird again.

I wondered if it was a territorial dispute with a younger male challenging an older one.

I am sorry I could not stay to see the outcome. I had groceries in the car that I needed to get home and into the refrigerator.

Have a wonderful week-end!

  1. ...they are a delight to hear.

  2. Some kind of a territorial dispute dance?!!
    Great photos - they are fine birds!

  3. Hello, great sequence of photos. Maybe a territorial dispute or two siblings arguing or a couple doing a dance. Thank you so much for linking up and for sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend.

  4. Getting a little territorial, perhaps!

  5. Nice pics of the mockingbirds. You gotta love a challenge! I have some in the front yard that I enjoy and occasionally they venture to our backyard.

  6. Beautiful images of the Mockingbirds.

  7. It's a strange time year for birds to be fighting. But some species do have winter territories.

  8. There was a standoff! Someone was going to have to go home! lol Great photos! Hugs!

  9. Fascinating! They seem like such smart birds. I remember hearing and seeing them a lot when I was living with my parents in Florida for a few weeks.

  10. Great photos. I do wonder what was going on between them? It's so hard when we want to watch birds but have to take care of other things isn't it?

  11. I am finding I have no ambition today & I should be out birding. Instead I tought I'd go out in search of those fine feathered beauties with YOU! Thanks for letting me and all at I'd Rather B Birdin' tag along.

  12. Mockingbirds are fun to watch and love hearing them sing.

  13. A lovely dance (I think). Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
