August 16, 2014 - Northern Mockingbird (Mimus polyglottos)
The Northern Mockingbird is found throughout North America. They eat mostly insects during the summer and mostly fruit in the fall and winter. Mockingbirds are accomplished singers and may be heard singing throughout the night, as well as during the day. Males continue to learn new songs throughout their lives and may sing different songs in the spring and fall. Females also sing, usually during the fall, although their songs are quieter than the males’.
