Mockingbirds, too

So a mockingbird couple has taken up residence as well in our back yard. They chose a clump of ball moss right over our rock patio for their nest site. So now when I go outside, I get glares and evil looks from the mockingbirds. The squirrels get chased, and even a hummingbird that innocently perched on a nearby oak branch got harrassed.

I'm allergic to oak pollen so our cat hadn't gotten any time out on the front porch for a good while. I let them out yesterday for a few minutes and we were all treated to quite a mockingbird show as they scolded and dive-bomb chased two different squirrels away from their nest and all the way across the street, right towards us.

I'm not sure who was the most excited - the parent birds, the trespassing squirrels, or our cats!
