Northern Mockingbirds in Tempe, AZ USA

Took a stroll in a park on this hot day in the desert Southwest and came across a group of 3 Mockingbirds just making all sorts of racket and chasing each other around. They almost seem to enjoy the attention I was paying them as they would frequently stay perched when I would try to get a photo.

Nice photos. I think the bird with striped breast is juvenile.
