A Northern Mockingbird was here on August 4, 2012 in the yards. It was very entertaining to see this musical noisy bird. The Mockingbird interacted with the Red-headed Woodpecker as I mentioned in yesterday’s post. it also perched on the electric line in front of the house for a long time. It sang many songs reflecting its intelligence and age. These birds learn to mimic the songs and calls of many birds in their environment. The Mockingbirds eat insects, seeds, and nuts. They are smaller medium-sized birds with grey and brown and black coloring. I don’t see the Northern Mockingbird very often but do enjoy their antics a lot!
