Rocking Mocking Bird

I remember that I still have a tell to tale about the junior Mourning Dove. In the meanwhile, though, this young Mocking Bird has started chirping -- more like squeaking,  really-- every time that mom slows down on the steady stream of worms she's been ferrying in.   He needs to get big quick because the nest is sitting on the leaf of a palm tree.  The windy weather we've been having has probably given him a queasy feeling quite often.
