I have a healthy population of mocking birds. All day long in the summer you can watch them in the grass stirrin up bugs and hear them making calls that sound like cell phones and stuff. I try to feed them bird seed but sparrows and starlings seem to eat up all the seed before the mocking birds get a chance.

I've been dive bombed by a mocking bird or two, they are brave that's for sure. They also don't seem to have a poblem with sparrows, Linda (one of our members) says she gets mocking birds in her repeater trap from time to time with the sparrows.

Mocking birds are very aggressive if you get near their nest. I like them because they would hand a starling or sparrow their tail feathers.

The only bird I've seen more aggressive is the bluejay.
