The Northern Mockingbirds have arrived here in recent weeks. Nature’s master mimics love to sing a huge number of convincing songs. These birds can learn the calls and songs of the birds around them. They are quite convincing and I have been fooled several times. The Mockingbirds are smaller mid-sized birds, that are nearly as large as the Blue Jays.
Mockingbirds eat insects, fruits, and nuts. They can be argumentative with other birds at times. I often see Mockingbirds up on the top of stop signs or light poles. They seem to like viewing the vicinity and scouting for other birds and for food. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
