Northern Mockingbird Calls
I live in a densely populated inner city. I hear a mockingbird but can’t tell where it is. How far does their song travel on a quiet Saturday morning?
Chico, CA, This bird sings to me every morning while I work in my garden. He/she is very difficult to catch a glimpse of! Finally saw it take flight and identified the white tipped wing. Love his songs!
I have a mocking bird nesting in my hibiscus plant that stands over 7 foot high. I’m in Yulee Florida. This birds songs can be heard in my house. She has laid 3 eggs so far.
I have a mockingbird that has nested in a tree near my office window for a couple of years. He is quite a chatterbox! and sounds NOTHING like the posted recording. He really is a "mocking" bird as I have noticed a couple other species calling and he has clearly adopted their songs into his repertoire. He can go on and on, 5-15 minutes. Some of the fragments are quite lyrical. It's also fun that he jumps into the air, fans his wings for a few flaps, showing off the white patches underneath, then lands in the same spot. That's finally how I identified him.
Eastern TN. He just came back yesterday. There was a pair of cardinals considering this tree over the last week, but I think he's claiming it back.
Heard the mockingbird in Conway, SC on July 4, 2018...I could listen to it all day. It sings and chirps so many different sounds....just beautiful to listen to.
The last few days I have been hearing this burden call not knowing what it was This is the first time I've heard this bird in our neighborhood Took a wild to figure it out Thanks for your page.
I have an abundance of mockingbirds at my home on the NC coast. They appear to be a little cranky, but I enjoy listening to them!
