Northern Mockingbird

The Northern Mockingbird, Mimus polyglottos, is another very common bird in this region.  They are very territorial and often chase other birds away from the feeders.   They are very accomplished singers, often heard late on a warm summer night.  Their nest is built of very coarse twigs.
