Our State Bird...

...is the mockingbird. We've lived in our Austin, TX-area home for 27 years and a mockingbird family has always lived in a dwarf yaupon holly bush in the front yard. I can almost always find one sitting atop the holly, as I did this afternoon. Canon 30D, EF 200mm f2.8L II with Canon 2X extender.

Re: Out State Bird...

That title is supposed to read "Our State Bird," not "Out State Bird," but I can't find a way to edit it...

Re: Out State Bird...

TB, thanks for the clarification....I wasn't sure if it was an in-state or out of state bird.

Re: Out State Bird...

I think this is a beautiful photograph. I love the dof, and the focus on the bird is spot on.
