I walked across the Governer's square mall parking lot yesterday. An hour before the sunday opening, the lot was empty and deserted.
quiet.
In one of the trees along the dividers, far far off, i heard what sounded like
"beep...beep...beep...beep"
----like one of those construction barracades with the blinking yellow lights and the beepings.

but this beep came from a tree!
as i got closer, i could see that there was a mockingbird in this tree and this was its song! mockingbirds are great mimics of songs of other birds....i guess this bird now has a new song, in its reprtroire!
