There are always mockingbirds around, singing and squawking and chasing each other. This one landed on the fence with a small red-orange caterpillar or grub in its bill.

The mockingbird turned to look directly at me. Mockingbirds tend to be bold birds.

The mockingbird eventually ate its prey but continued to sit on the fence.

Looking very sleek and elegant here.
