It seems the mockingbird nest had a tragedy last night or this morning. Yesterday there were three and today there is only two. I know there is only one in the nest pictured below, but when I looked a few minutes later there were two. Also there was a "poof" of feathers on the grass a few feet from the nest.
The mockingbird chicks are getting big. Maybe another week and they will fledge. Mom and Dad fiercely defend the nest against all threats. I got swooped on, screeched at and then Mom stood her ground between me and her nest.
