Have to conclude that Mockingbirds have paired. I think boy and girl Mockingbirds spend their winter watching each other. And sometimes they might allow their dreams to stray. Then about now it's the familiar face, the ordeal of Summer territory and a sturdy nest. So better the devil you knew this time last year.
In the community of birds life is fairly short. There is no medical profession. No Quack with black bag doing the rounds. No stethoscope. And unless you are chicken or live in a zoo, their are no inoculations. Which leaves loyalty or a sense of freedom.
