Northern Mockingbird (Mimus polyglottus)
We've been watching for this feathered fellow for several weeks. It's a year-round resident here but he had been eluding us until last week when a birder friend told us he had seen the mockingbird munching on some small rose hips.
Hips from wild rose
Turns out the bird is quite willing to eat supper if its hungry enough, even when there are people a few feet away.
Which one looks tastiest?
I guess these hips were tasty enough to take the risk.
YUM!I am connecting to Stewart M's Wild Bird Wednesday HERE
