Birdwatching in North America - Northern Mockingbird, Mimus polyglottos


The northern mockingbird (Mimus polyglottos) is a mockingbird commonly found in North America. This bird is mainly a permanent resident, but northern birds may move south during harsh weather. This species has rarely been observed in Europe. This species was first described by Carl Linnaeus in his 1758 10th edition of Systema Naturae as Turdus polyglottos. The northern mockingbird is known for its mimicking ability, as reflected by the meaning of its scientific name, "many-tongued thrush". The northern mockingbird has gray to brown upper feathers and a paler belly. Its tail and wings have white patches which are visible in flight.

I'm out on a birding tour


I will attend to this page as soon as I am back home again.
So please come back in June/ July 2023

Listen to the Northern Mockingbird

Remarks from the Recordist

Recorded with my ZOOM H5 Handy Recorder. High pass filter applied with Audacity

In the top of a tree at the entrance to Key West Tropical Forest & Botanical Gardens. I got both pictures and a sound recording and thanks to two visitors to the Botanical Garden I could ID the bird

Sitting next to me in a bush, but it is always strong wind around San Fransisco so the recording not as good as I had been hoping for.
