MockingBird next with eggs

Wings Flapping Near Your Head in the Garden

Actively scouting for insect pests in the garden may keep other wildlife out of the garden such as the Mockingbird that recently laid eggs in the top section of a vertical hydroponic system currently growing green beans. Within a week, the four eggs are now one egg with three young birds to keep the parent birds busy. The parents are always close by, sometimes just making a noise but sometimes, they will buzz near your head if you get too close. Mockingbirds are but one of our many Florida State Symbols.  For more Florida State Symbols see: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/pdffiles/UW/UW20900.pdf
