This Mockingbird has been a constant fixture at the backyard feeders lately (probably because the current seed mix has raisins) so I decided to let him be the star of a lighthearted limerick.
The Mockingbird perches on high
And looks down with his arrogant eye
Though he knows lots of songs
He just can’t get along
He’s an ill-tempered unfriendly guy!

He looks friendly to me!
Don’t let him fool you!
Really great shots Kathie.
Wonderful photos and verse!
Sometimes you just have to rhyme!
adorable limerick and awesome photos! This is one bird we don’t have visit here.
I have sort of a love/hate relationship with him!
lol! I’m sure.
Love your lighthearted Limericks! ❤️
Thanks! They are always fun for me to write. 🙂
Did you say raisins? Heck, I would also be a regular at your feeder, Kathy! 😀
Hey, there’s peanuts and a warm water spa too – come on over!
Thanks for sharing, the limerick suits this bossy bird. Every year, when they are nesting, we have a difficult time going in our back yard. They continuously squeak at my cat, that is safely inside minding her own business. It’s hard to have kind thoughts of this pesky bird, ha, ha!
And they can get the bossiest expressions!
