I have noticed over the past two weeks, two mockbirds (at least I think it's two birds) building a nest in my big cedar tree next to my porch!!! I have been outside the past week working in my flowerbeds and I have really enjoyed hearing them!!

I have two mockingbirds also. They have lived in my yard for about four years now.

They are too funny, yesterday I was in the flower bed right behind the tree and one flew down very close to me and just looked at me "like, Hey what are you doing?"!!

Ahh, he was looking for a snack maybe? Try putting out some apple slices, grapes, orange slices, or a bowl of grape jelly near where you see them, on a flat surface like an old table top or wooden platform and see what happens. Mockingbirds are omnivorous. They eat anything and everything but Especially love fruit and suet.

I will have to do that, I have to put some kind of small table near there, I could put it on my front porch, do you think they would go there? I also hung my hummingbird feeders up today!!

Good for you! The Hummingbirds are here and are moving north at the rate of about 10 miles a day. Try putting the table on your front porch where they can see it and put a bunch of apple slices on it. That should bring the Mockers a'runnin'.

I love to feed as many kinds of birds as I can but have never been able to feed the mockingbirds. Every time I put out fruit for all the fruit-loving birds, the fireants find it mad Has anyone figured out a way to outsmart the pesky little devils? I just hate fireants.

When I used to go to my grandparents house in southern Louisiana each summer, I quickly learned that the tall towers and mounds of sand in their yard was NOT meant to play in. dev shk eek laugh One time is ALL it takes. I still get hives thinking about it!
