A northern mockingbird (Mimus polyglottos) trying to frighten me away from the tree (195_9531)

[northern mockingbirds (Mimus polyglottos); the first photo shows one leaping from the tree after it had tended to the hatchling who’d climbed out of the nest far too soon; the second shows one as it attempted to frighten me away from where I stood watching the goings on this morning; you can tell from the second photo that it’s been raining all morning]
