As I walked along the park path, a giant, blackbird flew overhead. I have seen these hawk-sized creatures in another neighborhood park without the slightest clue as to what they were.
The bird landed on the roof peering over the park. A Mockingbird quickly flew to his side, flitting about playfully with a rambunctious spirit. I see Mockingbirds nearly every visit to the park, so I pondered the relationship to the blackbird. I had a hunch that this bird is not a crow given its gargantuan size.
