The Mockingbird is a favorite bird of mine...I grew up listening to him wake me up at 4 o'clock AM as he sang every song imaginable.  He could sing anything...but what I wanted to do was to throw something out of the window at him. In the summer we slept with the windows open for fresh air.  I do love him for his singing ability he can even mimic a dogs bark and the UPS man's whistle. He is great on protecting his berries, will definitely "fuss" his foes away...I have even seen him dive-bomb my cat or dog when they were close to his spring nest. When I painted this bird I realized he had whiskers. Giclee prints not shown here can be made to order.

This painting is part of a series of 10 paintings so groupings can be made.  The other paintings that go with it are House Finch, Southern Screech Owl, Cedar Waxwing, Bluebird on Nandina, Northern Flicker, Woodland Chickadee, Cedar Waxwings on Pyracantha pair, and Carolina Wren on Mahonia Berries.
