Northern Mockingbird nesting. A late brood or a second one? The angle here, by the way, is accurately represented. I wonder if they built it this way or it somehow shifted once they got it going.

If you think these sweetgum pods look odd, you’d be right. This is a different species from our native Liquidambar styraciflua.

Spotted under another nearby tree, which also has a Mockingbird nest in it.

Not so far away from both of these nests, I was already seeing NM fledglings two weeks ago.


There are candle light Lights for Liberty vigils across the country tonight to protest Trump’s concentration camps. In NYC, it’s in Foley Square in Manhattan, starting at 7pm.
