Northern Mockingbird

Northern Mockingbird (Mimus poluglottos) is one of the most popular suburban birds found near almost all man-made structure like park, yard, telephone wire, fence and open land with low elevation. Their musical talent made them to be one of the most beloved song bird back in early 1800. They mimic other birds around them. A male, through out its life, may learn up to 200 songs. You will hear their non-stopping singing from February till August. I hope you enjoy a solo performance from a bird who loves melody :)


Disregarding a heavy traffic and high wind in a cold winter day, this young mockingbird held his head high and was constantly singing. After snapping few shots and enjoyed his performance, I couldn't  help but  record his act to share with everyone.



One of the fun fact of mockingbird is that they will aggressively chase off any intruding bird or human who comes close to their nesting territory. So watch your head next time when you are near a mockingbird's nest....not from their droppings but from their friendly assault :) -- Happy Birding! -- Linda
