3 years ago mockingbirds built a nest in my orange tree and we had two sets of babies. earlier this month, i noticed mockingbirds returning to my orange tree with twigs in their beaks. could they be building another nest?
all about birds says “mockingbirds rarely ever reuse their nests,” so imagine my surprise when i peaked into my orange tree and saw that they didn’t build a new nest, they just remodeled the old one!
feeding their little babies is a full time job!
i finally got a glimpse of the babies yesterday. i don’t want the parents to think i’m going to harm their babies so i time my snooping in between their feedings.
oops, the baby heard me rustle the leaves so he thinks his parents are here to feed him. sorry little baby, it’s just me.
until we meet again my friends-
