mockingbird parents

I was doing some trimming at the bottom
of our steep backyard last week.
Lots of mockingbirds live down there.

A pair of them very agitated with my presence.
I shot a few quick photos through a bush
then retreated back uphill.

I couldn't figure out why they were so upset 
until I spotted this baby bird on the
other side of the yard.

The next day, I saw them dive bombing
an innocent groundhog who was just walking through the yard.
I guess I was lucky.
