That would be a northern mockingbird.

WAY to fond!

Blueberry season is definitely a constant battle with birds. I would share and give the birds all they could ever eat, but they will just destroy the whole crop in a matter of days. They may actually eat 10%, the other 90% is knocked to the ground, or damaged before they are even ripe.

A rather handsome looking mallard from Clear Lake, Nassau Bay, Texas.

There is freedom waiting for you, On the breezes of the sky, And you ask 'What if I fall?' Oh but my darling, What if you fly?

I made this wood duck box today. I only had an electric chainsaw and some useless keyhole saw, plus a cordless drill and a file.

Ducks aren’t too picky I hope.

The white geese with one tiny little gosling. The gosling is bending over by the curb. I wonder why there's only one? Shouldn't there be others?

I'm not sure what kind of geese these are. One of them seems to have a rather unique black beak.

@SpookyShoe looks like Chinese Gray, one of the domesticated knob geese of Asia.
