While trimming our landscaping yesterday, a mockingbird surprised me and flew out of our Bougainvillea bush right outside our front door. Turns out there was a nest in there with three eggs. I snapped a couple photos and went on with my yard work. Those mockingbirds are pretty fearless. When I was edging and trimming with my gas powered trimmer, she stayed in the nest and did not leave the eggs. That’s pretty brave for a bird, because that trimmer is really loud! So I was able to snap another photo with momma mockingbird sitting on the nest.
