Juvenile Mockingbird on Our Wooden Fence

I spotted one of the Mockingbird juveniles in our back yard, perching atop the wooden fence, chirping away.  This cutie was from the olive tree nest and he or she is approximately 3 weeks old now.

Both parents remain near by.  One or the other is usually perched upon the light pole, close to the wooden fence.  They can be heard when a potential predator enters the back yard- they loudly yell out their warning calls and begin flying from tree to tree.  

These Mockingbird parents will probably have another brood or two before summer comes to a close.  I'll keep my eyes open for more fledglings in the near future.
