Appreciating Deeply, Photos of Fauna Northern Mockingbird, Gilbert AZ 31 January 2017 04 October 2017 Birds This time of year, there are lots of northern mockingbirds in these relatively southern parts (as shown by this recent post), and sometimes they pause just long enough for photos. Very obliging.

Nice study of a mockingbird in short time frame.. Isabel Gibson 05 February 2017 at 11:44 am 3 years ago Jim R – Thanks. Some of the birds at that preserve are a little less flitty – more used to human presence, perhaps? – and correspondingly easier to photograph.

Isabel Gibson 05 February 2017 at 2:14 pm 3 years ago Marion – Good point. I didn’t actually see that. I do appreciate the low leaf cover this time of year in Phoenix – it makes them possible to spot and much easier to photograph.
