Saw one mocker chick yesterday and a couple of times today.
It flies well but still has trouble balancing on a wire when the
wind is blowing. It still CHEEEEEEEP
s instead of making
noises like the adults, though I haven't seen anyone feeding it.
It landed on the house roof today and did an odd sideways dance,
combined with the trademark mockingbird wing-opening ritual,
then hopped into the gutter and rooted around there before flying
