CAPE CORAL, Fla. -- A man says a mockingbird pecks at him every time he gardens. Our cameras caught the bird in action, swooping down towards the man's rear end as he bends over.

His family did not believe him at first, but witnessed it today. They also sent other family members out, but the bird ignored them. 

A wildlife expert says there may be a next nearby and the bird may be protecting her babies.
