I heard lots of noisy birdcalls in the backyard this afternoon, and I walked out to see baby mockingbirds. The young birds had mastering flying and left the nest, and were hopping around the yard, the fences, and the shed. I love the big eyes and speckled chests of these little birds.

Baby mockingbirds are already capable of giving you this bold stare.

This little one flew up to the shed roof.

It balanced near the peak of the roof as it looked around.

And after awhile, this one began squawking for food from its parents too.
