Bird watching

We have had some good cat TV this weekend. Mom and Dad found a baby mockingbird hopping around in the front yard. He wasn't hurt, just trying to break in his new wings. Momma and Poppa bird were watching from high places, and Momma Bird would bring Baby Bird food every now and then. Baby Bird hopped toward another yard with his wings pumping late this afternoon, so we are very hopeful that he got up and going.

We hope he managed to get his wings working and didn't end up as dinner for anyone! (Not you, of course, Jasper. We were thinking more of a bird of prey.)
