Northern Mockingbird calling from the top of the Backyard oak tree. Mockingbirds are common in many backyards but here they keep a lower profile owing to a large family of Blue Jays that run the backyard. Mockingbirds never come to feeders here, but love birdbaths and prefer fruit and insects they can pick from the trees. Morning is their time to sing from the highest tree, but alas the ever-growing noise pollution of civilization competes with their beautiful songs as you will hear in the middle of the recording.
It is becoming harder and harder to find true silence in Nature.
