A very unkempt-looking mockingbird on the fence today.

Looks like it’s molting, with new feathers starting to grow in.

There was a bare patch on the top of the bird’s head where feathers were missing.

Max had a lot of fun today with a toy Sophie used to love–a floppy stuffed rabbit. Max took it outside and ran around the yard with it for a few minutes. Then he stopped and got into a battle with the rabbit.

The rabbit put up a good fight, but in the end Max was victorious.
