Berries for the birds... by marlboromaam

Berries for the birds...

I watched a mockingbird bully off a cardinal, a brown thrasher, a chickadee and a raspberry finch today. Seems he or she wants all of the pyracantha berries to his or herself. Mean ol' mockingbird.
Lovely splash of red

Those berries have to bring you a lot of business - very pretty.

@dutchothotmailcom LOL! Lucky if they can get a berry before the mockingbird runs it off. Thanks, Esther!

Yes, at home when I was a child in Germany, we called them Vogel- beeren. Vogel - bird, beeren - berries, but you probably figured it out. t

Glad to see your berries are still going strong, as are mine.

Beautiful capture - I've been lucky so far, no big birds have located my back patio feeders.

@sangwann Thank you, Dione! I wish! I will try.

@kvphoto Yes! How do I run off the mockingbird?

@pdulis Thanks, Peter! I would love to!

@santina Thank you, Santina! Seems the mockingbird is the only taker - running off all the other birds.

@mittens Thank you, Marilyn!

@haskar Thank you very much!

@craftymeg Thanks, Margaret! That's nice to know. =)

@marlboromaam slingshot? Nope... just kidding... mockers are kind of like crows... they keep showing up.
November 20th, 2020  
Haha, greedy little mocking bird. There's so many of them too, enough to share, but birds are gonna be birds. Nicely captured!

@kvphoto It's odd really. I hardly saw mockingbirds around here until recently. I figured them as mainly city birds like pigeons. I've had the occasional blue jay too. Both are mean! I love my cardinals, bluebirds, chickadees, brown thrashers, finches, etc. - they don't fight with each other. The mockingbird is a bully! You'll never guess what I've named this one. ROFLOL!

@cjphoto Thanks, Chris! None of the other birds I mentioned are selfish. Just the mockingbird. ???
November 20th, 2020  
So pretty and christmassy!

@cocobella Thank you, Corinne!

@marlboromaam I guess you don’t have any starlings... they are some incredibly aggressive birds.
November 21st, 2020  
@kvphoto No. From what I understand, starlings like big clearings and there are too many woods around here for them. Finches and bluebirds nest in the starling house. LOL!
