Medium sized songbird, mostly gray with white wingbars. Long thin bill with a hint of downward curve.
Just about anywhere in Florida -towns, suburbs, backyards, parks, forest edges, and open land at low elevations.
The mockingbird is the bird that got me interested in birding. I love how they change songs and mimic other birds. While watching one nearby, this one flew in out of nowhere carrying a mole cricket. I thought it was going to head to a nest, but next thing I knew it gulped it down in seconds flat.
Lat: 30.44, Long: -84.28
