Mocking bird vs Ratsnake

My girlfriend snapped these pics of a mocking bird harrassing a Ratsnake in our front yard. I can always tell when there is a snake around in the yard somewhere close by. The Blue Jays are like a warning signal and get so loud that I can here them inside the house.

I keep coming by this thread, seeing the pictures and getting a big laugh out of it... I know it's not funny for the animals, but I can't help it. lol

I know what you mean, funny but not funny. I watched a lil ol mocking bird chase a 6' rat snake about 15 yards across the side of my lawn one day. I thought, why doesn't the snake just stop, defend itself and try and have some lunch
I found out why the blue jays act up so badly many years ago when I was a kid. I come across a black rat snake eating a baby blue jay that it had taken out of the nest. Was the first time as a lil boy that I had seen and watched live a snake eat its prey.

Very cool photos, thank for posting. The bird looks VERY smug - what was the outcome?

The out come was the usual, the snake headed up the old oak tree. It's almost the same every time, up the tree or into the bushes. I can't wait to see just one time, the rat snake snatches up that ol mean mocking bird, constricts it, then down the ol gullet
