Mohawk was very impatient this morning.
He hesitated in his basket for only a moment today.
He flew (flapped) straight over to me.
I lifted him up to the fence line and he took no time at all to hop onto the fence and fly (leap?) straight onto a branch of the trees in our neighbors yard.
He landed safely...much to my surprise, but probably not his.
It's a pretty good location...it even has a pool side view.
And lest you think he's nervous or anxious sitting there in the wide wild world...
As best I can figure with lots of googling, he is a blackbird species.
A run of the mill bird to most...but most amazing to us!
