I haven't been getting very much sleep lately.
A mocking bird built his nest right outside my bedroom window. I don't know how much you know about mockingbirds, but they can do over 200 different bird calls plus some other sounds. Ours does at least 200 different bird calls and he occasionally throws in some police siren, frog croaks, crickets, locust and dog bark. I have heard that mockingbirds can also mimic humans, so now I'm wondering if a part of all the "mom!" "mommy!" "mo----om!" throughout our house could actually be the bird. Just what I need. One more talker!
From the time I go to bed until the break of early dawn, it sounds as if there is a menagerie of animals taking turns talking out on the lawn. In reality, it's one lonely male trying to come up with the perfect one-liner to attract his mate.
Somebody please help find this boy a girl! My well-being depends on it!
