It might be a brown thrasher. They are actually louder and more vocal than mockingbirds.

Thank you all. I didn't see the usual fieldmarks of a mockingbird and I thought it was to brown...

As you noted these birds mimic or "mock" the calls of other birds. They have even been known to mimic other sounds that have become part of the urban soundtrack like cell phones and chainsaws!
