MAMA MOCKINGBIRD PROTECTING HER NEST
This mama mockingbird is a different one from a few weeks ago. She's different because she keeps dive bombing Punkin. She still makes those warning chirps, but it's like she has a death wish. I've watched her come so close to Punkin and peck her and I'm so afraid Punkin is going to grab her. Then, what will happen to her babies.
Her nest is in this crepe myrtle tree next door. It's a perfect place for a nest. The limbs are very sturdy and cradle the nest. And, mockingbirds make such good, pretty, sturdy nests.
I know she's just trying to distract Punkin from her babies and I really hope she survives.
I'll be watching and hoping for the best!
