While watching the Horseshoe Crab egg feast at Fortescue, I saw several other kinds of smaller birds flying around. One of them was a Northern Mockingbird that openly paraded on the road.

The bird was very active flying in and out of some bushes by the road. Inside one of the bushes was a juvenile waiting to be fed.

The adult fed the youngster several times, but I could not see whether it was with a Horseshoe Crab egg or not.

The juvenile kept asking for more as the adult contemplated what to do next.

Finally it flew up to an electric wire, surveying the landscape.
