What’s Up? – A Story to Remember
A Story to Remember
I have the most compelling story to tell you.
On May 16th: I was late afternoon, I was in my kitchen talking with my wife Lucy and I happened to look outside to the backyard and I saw something on the grass. It looked strange, so I decided to investigate…I found a dead young Northern Mockingbird, I checked it, he was cold already, intact, no wounds or any kind of trauma that would indicate violence or attack of any kind. First thing I thought, where are the parents? I looked around, none of the parents was around…Very strange.
On May 17th: At early morning, after I cleaned the area and utensils, I proceeded to refill all feeders and officially open the daily meals for the birds. That’s when I get my camera ready, it’s the moment when all birds find their way to the feeders, for me, is also a good time to get excellent lighting on my photos.
Suddenly I see a mockingbird perched in a branch, it was a young one, similar the bird I picked up from the ground the day before. I said to myself. What?
