Last year I discovered a mocking-bird building a nest in the flower vines on my fence. The bird noticed that I discovered the nest and abandoned it as there had been no eggs laid. Today while trimming my firebush I noticed a mockingbird acting a little upset. I soon figured out why. It had built a nest in my tree. The way it was acting I knew there were either eggs or birds in the nest. As I tried to get closer without disturbing what was in the nest I was quite surprised to see at least two birds sleeping in the nest. In doing some reading the mockingbird lays an average of 3-4 eggs. The incubation period is 12-13 days and they leave the nest in 12 days. That seems quick. Glad I got to see them. I just love seeing God’s creatures!!
