Northern Mockingbird

Mimus polyglottos

Description:

"A medium-sized songbird, a bit more slender than a thrush and with a longer tail. Mockingbirds have small heads, a long, thin bill with a hint of a downward curve, and long legs. Their wings are short, rounded, and broad, making the tail seem particularly long in flight." Source: Cornell Lab of Ornithology

Habitat:

In towns, suburbs, backyards, parks, forest edges, and open land at low elevations.

Notes:

This little one doesn't need a parking permit yet! lol
