Cheers Lester. I hadn't seen one until a couple of weeks ago but was shown what to look and listen for by a mate. Now I see them all the time, yew and holly are a favourite and they are not that shy this was taken just off the car park at Newlands Corner. I felt a bit daft with the 500mm and camo on but worth the wait and strange looks with over a dozen photos.

That's because that is a caracara, not a mascara. ;-)a

The most patient Northern Mockingbird I've come across in a white, let me get about 7 feet from him.

At my old house I had a mockingbird that i would hand feed. Didnt train him one bit, just came up to me one day while filling the feeders and started taking my food.

They're extremely gregarious, I almost always have a shot of a Mockingbird after an wildlife photo outing.
