    Mornings lost some of their charm the morning after I learned what birds were actually singing. According to my teachers, at best they were singing, “Hey BABYWHOEVER you are…I have a nest and I’m the best…let’s make eggs!!!”
    and at the worst-
    “I’m the biggest meanest wickedest songbird in this tree and if you don’t stay away from my nest I’ll peck your eyes out.”
    Let’s all sing like the birdys sing, expletive expletive expletive.
    /sigh

    Yes but she talked pleasantly to YOU little guy. I’d take that over being fed. As long as I get fed once in a while.

    Freestanding neighborhood mailboxes like that are about as common as dial phones these days.

    In the closest town from here (pop. c. 1600), they have a mailbox in the Walmart parking lot, in the parking lot in front of a shopping center, and in front of the P. O. Probably a couple of others I don’t know about . . .Granted, these aren’t neighborhood mailboxes.

    The mailboxes in my neighborhood were for public use when I first moved here in the ‘70s. The mailboxes are still there, but are now used to store the mailbag for that immediate area. The public, (teens or young adults) also use it for artistic expression. This has also proven the need for more art classes. Our graffiti artists just don’t put out quality material.

    .
    I have one about half a block away. And there are at least 6 in random places down town. When I lived in a neighborhood with cluster boxes, each cluster had a box designed to accept letters to mail.

    As a retired carrier, I can tell you that those are called relay boxes. In my office, all the routes were either park and loop or mounted (curbside boxes) or a combination of both. You took all your mail for the day with you. When I was a kid the postmen in our city used the relay box system; they had to take a city bus to get to their starting points. If they missed the first bus, they would be at least 20 minutes late starting the route, leading to overtime. Also, the manager would often forget to buy bus passes when they were needed. He was too laid back, and could usually be seen practicing his golf swing (without a club, of course).

    Male Mockingbirds like to screech/sing/tweet about their badazzery at 2 am, usually just outside my window and just as I am about to sleep.

    Looking out my office window, I once saw two little boys in front of a mailbox. One was holding the other up. He was the one peeing in the open flap.
