  •  Mockingbirds have chutzbah (9+ / 0-)

    My first kitty (named Kitty) used to lay in the front yard grass.  She would play dead.  The mockingbirds would dive at her to pluck hair for a nest.  It wasn't a good move.  She always won that battle...poor birds.  Yes, I felt for the birds and rescued them (or diverted Kitty) when possible.  That was my only outdoor kitty.

    The mockingbirds had a magnificent win though.  Before I was born, my bro was walking to school when birds started dive bombing him and pulling his hair.  He ran back home.  My own mum didn't believe him until a neighbor called to tell her about it. It happened in front of her house.  It was true.  They were plucking his hair for a nest.  It was the hair.  He made Carrot Top's hair look pastel.  LOL
