The Northern Mockingbird,, is the only mockingbird commonly found in North America. Mockingbirds’ willingness to nest near houses, their loud and frequent songs, and their territorial defense often annoy people. Mockingbirds are very social birds and young mockingbirds are sometimes seen playing with other birds. Siblings often play with each other as well. If captured when young and raised by humans, mockingbirds may also play with humans upon gaining familiarity with them. This fella was not willing to play with me, but he posed nicely. It was about 25 degrees outside when I took this in Rockaway, NJ USA. I used the Nikon D3100 and the 70-300mm zoom lens.

I’ve always appreciated nature, but I didn’t show interest in photography until digital started to come into it’s own. I had many cheap cameras over the years, but when I got the Nikon D3100 for my birthday last year, I really started to realize what photography was all about. I’ve had such a blast learning on the go over the past 10 months. I’ve gotten shots that I could have only dreamed of a year ago. I hope you all enjoy my photos, and by all means, BUY SOMETHING! =)

    Nice one, William….I didn’t realize they stayed around in the cold winter….they are such lovely looking birds and, as you say, very social… I often see groups of them together enjoying themselves…
