Caught this Mocking Bird thieving Dusty Miller leaves. No wonder the plant has been looking sparse, it's been picked off for nesting material.

I miss the Mockingbirds, we don't have them in Northern Illinois. Catbirds and thrashers, yes.
As it continues to warm up, maybe we'll have them eventually.

Thanks, Slowpez and Ter-or, the same pair of mockingbirds frequent my backyard and polyhouse. They have a nest in the neighbors tree and provide a lot of entertainment.
