56. Well, this is a neat story

but I guess these catbirds can change on a dime. First she wanted your help, you and your son saved her baby, then she swooped the son, but showed her gratitude toward you after the rearing of the baby was over by hanging around your garden and talking to you.

Today, I came into my back room to check my email and I heard something at the window. The shade was pulled. So I raised it and low and behold, one of the mockingbirds was sitting on the sill looking in at me! Later, one was sitting on the sill of the window in the living room, looking inside, checking everything out.

Go figure. These birds are unpredictable, admirable in many ways, unforgiving though if they suspect you are a threat to the nest. I am thinking perhaps people who find their yards perpetually inhabited find exactly the proper middle ground to walk, but it must take time and patience....

I will try to let you know!

Sam
