Two Spring Songbirds

Northern Mockingbird

Northern Mockingbird

A Northern Mockingbird and a Mourning Dove were pretty much the birds I had been able to photograph in the last couple of days (I did see some Crows, too).  The weather here has been very windy and cool.  I also believe that many of the birds are nesting and possibly, molting (seasonally changing feathers).

I took these pictures yesterday in the afternoon here in our development.  The Mourning Dove was standing on a decorative landscaping rock and periodically cooing, which is why in one picture, you see the bird’s throat puffed outward.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger photo.  Enjoy!  Have a very happy Easter!
