Josephine, our big horse-like German Shepherd was being attacked by a mockingbird each time she went into the backyard. We could not figure out where the bird hatred was coming from.
Later in the evening we saw Josephine pouncing at something small on the ground. It was a baby bird! We ushered her inside and checked on the fledgling. Mom and dad were circling the yard and walking the fence squawking and ready to peck someones eyes out.
I asked on Facebook and someone had said to leave the bird and it would be gone in the morning and it was!! We enjoyed watching the little fledgling and getting some cute pictures!
