I hope you’ve made a photo book of all these captures of your birds – and if not may I gently and respectfully suggest that you do You are very skilled at this and it’s a pleasure to view your work. I love the softness yet at the same time, the clarity you obtain in your shots and artful & tasteful editing.

    • Pat says:

      The Northern mockingbird is known for its ability to imitate other birds , animals and even some mechanical sounds. Some males know as many as 200 songs. They can sing loudly all day and even on moonlit nights.

    Pat, this is wonderful. This bird is so lovely. And yes, it’s stretching so gracefully. First, when I looked at this bird I thought about an young ballet dancer. Perhaps, how graceful this bird is.

    Pat, it’s an excellent and extremely beautiful photo work!

    I just love watching them stretch!
    When my pet birds do it, they wiggle their little tail feathers at the same time, and nearly fal off their perches!

    Thank you so much for sharing with us today at The Creative Exchange.

    Have a wonderful evening, Pat!
