The video may be difficult to see the action as it was shot through my front window with a cheap camera. Couldn’t risk getting closer without scaring the bird away. Hope you enjoy this small bit of excitement in the neighborhood.

This has been an on going battle the last week or so. The mocking bird has a nest in the tree partially seen on the left. So far the cat has no interest in the bird other than “You’re making my life harder than it has to be.”.

Any follow up on this? I have 3 cats that confront the mocking birds fairly often. 😊

The cat and the mocking bird are still out there. The mocking bird attacks have abated the last month and a half or so.

Strange to watch. The cat would be slowly walking oblivious to the bird who was hovering and attacking about a foot above the cat. Sort of like the old Peanuts character Pig Pen with his cloud of dust constantly around him. When the cat would lie down on the grass or in the street the bird would continue his attacking from above and on the ground as the cat ignored him. They would be doing this most of the day. Could be the cat enjoyed the activity.
