Have to thank my friend Tyler Bell for giving me final ID on this bird. He just seemed a little two squat and fat to be a Northern Mockingbird but that's what he is.
Took this on the Google+ Photowalk in DC. We were coming back from Roosevelt Island when I saw this bird in the bushes. I guess he felt protected enough by the twigs and sticks because I was able to get pretty close w/o him flying away.
