Mocking the Class of ’19

A fledgling Mockingbird in a tree. These things give themselves away with their “feed me” chipping.Another, even smaller, next to the neighboring bush. I think they were siblings (seemed to be fed by the same pair of adults).Looks helpless, but easily managed to hop-skip-flap up into the heart of the bush. People often mistakenly “rescue” fledglings that look helpless on the ground but aren’t. For some species, American Robins most notably, the young are out of the nest before they can fly, but that’s normal. The parents are feeding them.
