On a Mission

This mockingbird was more aggressive than ever today protecting its nearby nest from our cat.
She has got an agressive expression on his face and good for her! I expect she dive bombs the cat!

Oh, wow! She definitely looks fierce in this shot! Fabulous perspective to get her face on this way!

@maggiemae You are right, Maggiemae. This bird pecked Oscar on the back. It got so close to our back door and screamed today too. Babies must be just born or ready to be. Wish I knew where they are.

@grammyn Thank you, Katy. I was so lucky, had my camera in hand and this bird was moving from place to place on the fence, flying around our house and then would take off like this. I love the face too. I will miss this bird when it moves on. Hopefully not for a while with its mate and young.

I promise you a fav. and feel sorry I only can do one. ( Keep you cat inside the house as long as needed ). We did have a Blackbird nesting on +/- 7 feet from our house. They are all flow out now. They keep on feeding even when I was sitting in the garden near to it.

@darsphotos Thank you for the fav. You make me laugh. My cat will not catch this bird or its mates and is only allowed outside with one of us, so cannot leave the backyard. My cat is the reason I get photos like this. How fun to have a blackbird in your yard. Do you have trees? So they have babies and feed the babies while you watch? You need to take photos.

I promised I get back to you and here it's late again. been out today with Grace. she drove us to one of our favorite parks in Toronto. lots of walking underneath the trees to keep cool and a bit of stair climbing. it was warm and a bit humid, but bearable in the shade. Grace is feeling ok as long as she takes care and not overdue things. it'll heel in time.
Hans took me to her place this morning and Grace drove me home and stayed for dinner. so we had a great day together and she got to visit with Hans as well. usually I drive, but Hans needed the car this afternoon. Your cat only does what comes natural to him/her. great picture of the frantic bird.

@bruni I am so glad you had a nice time with race today. Sounds perfect. So glad Grace is feeling ok. It will heal and not a bad idea to follow up with her Dr though.
What a wonderful day you had with Grace and so nice to spend time with Hans too. Thank you so much, Bruni. Actually it is not my cat as much as it is this bird protecting. My cat does not go after this bird, it comes after him and our Ferrel cat we feed and is becoming part of our family.
We had fun too. Went to the Peach Fair in Sacramento this morning and had a nice time walking under the trees. They had a big Farmers Market but nothing made with peaches. Bought some fresh ones, lots of grapes, apricots and some tomatoes too. Got warm there so headed to the store and then home. So nice to get out and about. We are in for a huge heat up this coming week. Hope you are staying cool there and not to hot. Always nice to hear from you, Bruni. Thank you.

Well caught - he looks quite determined to chase folks away.

@taffy Thank you so much, Taffy. This bird has been after our cats to stay away. Did not hear it this morning. Wonder if babies have been born in the neighbors tree.
