Northern Mockingbird: Medium-sized mockingbird with gray upperparts, paler gray underparts, and faint eyeline. Wings are gray-black with two white bars and large white patches visible when spread. The tail is long, gray, and edged with white. Legs and feet are black. Feeds on fruit and insects.
Found in residential areas, city parks, farmlands, open country with thickets, and desert brush.
These two Mockingbirds were fighting/dancing/chasing each other and landed on the road in front of the house where I was visiting. It was a rural farm area.
