Mr. Mockingbird-My Weekly Smile

I spent Friday morning with a friend at Wave Hill park in Riverdale NY. We were there a few weeks ago and I wrote about it here. It is a place that always makes me smile, and especially when the sun is shining and there was no one else on the grounds except for us!

There is a Mockingbird who lives there who never fails to greet us as we enter the grounds, and he did so once again . He seems to have little fear of people and comes fairly close while looking for food on the grass and paths. He was there this morning atop a tree, taking in the views of the Hudson River1

He then flew to the ground and said hello2

  1. Your mockingbird made me smile. I think of a mockingbird as representative of my mom coming for a visit. It’s a long story as to why, but whenever one stops by I think she’s sending me a hello.
