Photo | Meet the official bird of the Sunshine State: the mockingbird

jay_0010The mockingbird is quite common in Florida, where it is considered the state bird. I see many in my wildlife observations. This immature mockingbird was blending into the bushes along Space View Park in Titusville, where I was scoping out the area in preparation for a space shuttle launch Wednesday morning. Of course, things never got off the ground, but now that NASA looks to have gotten to the bottom of the problem, things might get back on track.
