Mocking Bird

By kaoskode    
This is the state bird of Texas. A pair have taken residence in my hedge and have gotten used to me and let me get within 10 feet for this pic. Located in La Marque Texas on the gulf coast across the bay from Galveston Island.

Super Mocking bird image. I lived in Corpus Christi for a short time and never saw one of these, but I quickly learned to avoid red jelly fish around Padre Island. THIS IS SUCH AN ELEGANT LOOKING BIRD..oops. TG

Thanks Tony. I forgot to mention that these birds are the best acrobatic flyers I have ever seen.
I have seen them run off large birds of prey basically by flying circles around them pecking out their feathers. And they really can make any song bird call they hear.
