Maybe I'm easy to please, but this Northern mockingbird's visit made my morning.
He/she was the first bird to take a drink from my new bird bath, part of my solstice celebration. On its second morning, the water in the bath was soundly frozen. So I stepped outside early to change it. As I was closing the door after removing ice and adding water, this mockingbird landed and began to drink.
Later in the afternoon, he paid another visit when I happened to have the camera in hand. (imagine that.)
Of course I can’t be sure it’s the same bird, but this is the species that gets the bow!
