Yesterday, waiting for my appointment, a testosterone-addled mockingbird was determined to rid the area of the intruder.
The 8-week-old puppy on the other side of the window was fascinated, cautious and mostly curious about the aerial display and pecking.
I watched a bit more than an hour, and learned the mockingbird has been at this all day. He was still defending his territory when I left in late afternoon.
As I recall, several times my Dad had to cover the rear-view mirror on his pickup to deter the same behavior and keep the truck mirror from being broken.
