    This was taken in a patch of land where the ranch owners had uprooted a number of small trees. Quite a few birds were searching for tidbits in the soft dirt. This Northern mockingbird had some luck.

    Mockingbirds, when they hunt, flush insects by flashing the large white spots on their wings. I watched this guy hunt for several minutes, very interesting.

    I wouldn't call them brave so much as astute. I rolled of 20 frames of this setting but only caught one where they were facing each other.
