Mockingbird Nest with Eggs

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.
