Just as I headed out the driveway on Wednesday for parts unknown, right before me was a huge bird perched high in an old tree. He stood his ground for quite a bit as my resident Northern Mockingbird (a.k.a. Bossy) repeatedly dive-bombed him.
Northern Mockingbird (Mimus polyglottos)
Apparently Bossy thinks he is as big and bad as a Harris Hawk. Maybe I should change his name to Bad-Ass.
