Mimus polyglottos


A large, bossy mimic. Very attracted to suet.


Backyard with pine trees, backed onto narrow greenway.


I see these a lot in nearby lawns and pastures, but not much in my garden.

Is this the same species of Mockingbird Harper Lee was referring to in her epic novel? I've not read the book for 35 years, so it's probably time to reacquaint myself with it. A wonderful photo and spotting, ursulav.
