"Mockingbirds don't do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don't eat up peoples gardens, don't nest in corncribs, they don't do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That's why it's a sin to kill a mockingbird."
~From "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee (chapter 10)
We have babies! Just outside Sarah's window, in the middle of a holly bush we heard little baby bird cries. After some investigation, we found them. Three baby mockingbirds, vigilantly guarded and fed by mom and dad. We spent the better part of the morning watching and taking pictures. What fun!
Reminded me of the book, "To Kill A Mockingbird". I read it in High School, and then again last year with my "BooksAMonth" Yahoo group book club. It is a classic, and worth a second and third read!
Books like this add so much to my enjoyment of life, as do my BooksAMonth freinds! Maybe I will go read something profound!
