Northern Mockingbird


Northern Mockingbird ~ A constantly singing songbird...

A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.

The Dickcissel

Male Dickcissel
Since I've started taking notice of the birds surrounding my property - not just the ones that visit my bird-feeders - I've been amazed at the variety of species that occupy my rural Missouri backyard that I wasn't aware of before...

The Dickcissel is described by Audubon as a miniature meadowlark - which is what I thought I was photographing until I viewed the photos a little closer. It's a summer resident of the Midwest residing in open fields feeding on seeds and insects.
