Widespread throughout the US. Very territorial and will actively harass other birds. Medium sized songbird, more slender than a thrush and has a long tail, small head and short bill. Overall, they are grey, paler on the belly and breast, and have a white wing bar visible when perched. Usually sits on the top of vegetation (or anything else it can perch on) and sings its heart out.
Found anywhere with open areas and shrubby vegetation. Common in suburban areas and backyards.
I saw several mockingbirds at the Pelican Island Wetland, singing in the scrubby grassland.
