Stunning! Looks like he's got some berry juice above his eye too!

Awesome!! I would never have noticed the berry juice if you hadn't pointed it out. Great shot!

Awesome closeup, Kerri!

Terrific closeup! I just love seeing little bird feet in such detail. We have some mockingbirds but not enough.

Great photo of the Mockingbird. They always look so serious and work so hard at "guarding" whatever is theirs...or they think should be theirs :-)

Lovely.. one of my favourite birds. There's one that hangs around berry bushes in my park too. What a beauty.

Oh yes, it looks like this mockingbird may have been wallowing in the berries as I see purple stains above the eye and around the mouth. Awesome close-up capture!

The most closely I have seen a Mocking Bird, and I was going to ask about the juice, a precious photo.
