The Northern Mockingbirds seem to be very comfortable around the garden, all year round.
A couple of them checked out the garden beds for insects and berries.
And they scored with the asparagus fern. Unbeknownst to me, there were some ripe red berries somewhere in the plant.
Looking for asparagus fern berries...with Minnie Mouse Cuphea in bloom in the background.
Meanwhile this mockingbird decided to check out the Chiapas salvia.
Look at that expression!
