Northern Mockingbird






The Northern Mockingbird is a cute little gray bird, often found on lawns chasing flying bugs on foot. When bugs aren't available, they will eat berries.   high-res



When not eating, they are singing. They can mimic all kinds of other birds and it is not unusual for them to sing the calls of 15 different bird species in one long continuous song.   high-res



When running after bugs on the ground, they sometimes stop every few feet and spread their wings for a moment and then continue on. I haven't seen this behavior myself yet, so this photo is provided by my friend Kevin Bellanger.   high-res
