Mockingbirds cavorting?

Rosalie Valvo

I witnessed a scene in my backyard that has left me baffled.  It looked like a dozen (?) mockingbirds (?) flitting around, chasing after one another, in and out of the shrubbery, for several minutes.  None of them settled in sight long enough for me to get a good look.  I’ve never seen mockingbirds behave like that or gather in numbers like that.  Could it be one or more families of first-year youngsters having fun?  Are they even mockingbirds?
