A Mockingbird in an Oak Tree

My local variation of a classic Christmas carol!  :)  
Actually mockingbirds are ridiculously easy to photograph.  I think they are mesmerized by the sound of the auto focus beep on my camera; studying it in hopes of imitating it.  Sometimes when I'm photographing birds I have to turn the auto focus beep off, which I don't like to do.  Even though I can see the camera focusing, I'm reassured by the sound of the beep.  And the mockingbird is too, I guess.

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me,
A mockingbird in an oak tree...
