Northern Mockingbird For Camera Critters

by Larry Jordan on March 14, 2009

Northern Mockingbird photo by Larry Jordan

I am begining to see Northern Mockingbirds now as they vocalize all day long and sometimes into the night.  They are singing their spring songs now as they begin mating season.  They have some of the most intricate songs of all birds, adding songs to their repertoire throughout their life.  You can hear a sample here.

You can just see the large white wing patch on this photo at the wrist.  These wing patches show prominently when the bird is in flight.

One of my brothers lives in an area with lots of old-grown trees, and he’s had mockingbirds living in the canopy for years. He hates it! They tend to keep him up all night just when the weather is nice enough to have the windows open for sleeping. I think he’s too sensitive to sound – I love being lullabied by the mockers at night.

Happy Critturday!

Beautiful Mockingbird 🙂 I love them. We have one somewhere in the neighborhood, but since we haven’t put out mealworms, it hasn’t dropped by. But I hear it occasionally as I leave for work. Then, I hear another one at work.

Where I grew up, we had a mockingbird that loved our yard. The neighbors weren’t too fond of it as it would wake them up. It never woke me up!

You post some of the best bird photos!! And I’m not mocking you 😉 (forgive the bad joke).

You know how to show the subject matter – great depth of field that I see in so many of your photos.
