There’s a Mockingbird In This Neighborhood Who Is Being a Jerk…

He sits up in the neighbors big trees and squalls like a baby kitten, he’s loud too. Twice I’ve went into my yard looking for a kitten that got strayed over here and never found it. Then I saw that mockingbird fly away squalling like a baby kitten. Probably the same one that sung like a canary on April Fool’s Day a few years ago Had me looking that time too

mockingbirds are notorious dickheads.

@RupertCornelius There have been summers in this neighborhood that they have worn the cats out by harassing them. A few years and a few summers in a row there were a lot more mockingbirds here. They would return in spring and they had enough males to sit on the roofs of every house here, some had one on the back of the room and others on the front of the roofs. They were watching for cats, dogs and squirrels to chase out of the neighborhood. I went somewhere with the boy one afternoon and we were driving back home and saw a poor old ragged-looking cat in a frazzle trying to dodge a mockingbird from dive-bombing down it….looked exhausted by it all. Have seen cats many times running across the street trying to avoid the mockingbirds and running up under landscaping bush’s to hide.

@cherokeepatti my brother's childhood friends had this dog whose eye was pecked out by a mockingbird.
@cherokeepatti That happened one time here...
The birds learned real quick that my cats are predators and are happy to receive delivery of food on the wing. 😵😼

They call them "Mocking" birds for a reason. 🙃😈😁

They'll mock like anything. 🤷🏻‍♂️

It probably heard one recently and liked the sound of it. Those silly things will sing all night long in the summer. They may be the state bird but dang I wish they could shut up!

@TexChik He hasn’t done it at night yet. I had one mockingbird that would get in the neighbor’s tree next to my bedroom and start singing after midnight at least once a night.

I think we had them nesting up in the roofs at the equestrian center. They make some interesting sounds.
