I got the first two, WW. I will get them up on Friday evening, as I'm not home at all tomorrow.

If you were to play the same piece, one that you had composed yourself, over and over and the mockingbird learned it and sang it to a Czech composer who was visiting the States and he used it in a symphony he was composing could you sue him for copyright violation?

Dear Faldage:No, she'd have to sue the mockingbird.

And if that mockingbird won't sing...?
I can see from the second picture why your parents might be concerned about the house getting messed...
It's a right cutie, tho'. I hope it's still there when you get back.

Thanks, et', for posting those. We just returned from NY tonight--and I took off tomorrow to recover from the 11-hour drive. I'll practice K&I tomorrow and see whether the little m'bird will return. I hope so.

Connie: That's oatmeal on the windowsill I left for him, but he wasn't interested in oatmeal. I s'pose m'birds don't like o'meal.

Dear WW: As far as I can find out, mockingbirds do not eat seeds. I have a URL which says they will eat a variety of berries. A friend from South Carolina told me many years ago that they will eat raisins strung on a thread. I never had any luck with it, though. The recorded song on the URL is LOUSY.

P.S. The only thing I have ever seen them eat is live insects.
