|I took the above photo of the mockingbird just after
it had attacked and chased our cat into the garage. If you look close
he has his feathers ruffled up on the back of his neck. Just for
the record, my cat was just minding his own business when the bird attacked.
A mockingbird is very territorial and one of the most aggressive birds
around. A mockingbird will dive down and attack a large dog. I have
even had one to attack me as I walked under a tree where it was sitting.
The mockingbird may be a good picture for anger.
