To kill a mockingbird

To Kill A Mockingbird

A picture of a typical

Southern mockingbird

“Mockingbirds are the song champions of the bird world. Their happy singing can lift your spirits, or sometimes drive you crazy after you have had enough. If you hear a bird singing at night, it is most likely a mockingbird. Mockingbirds normally will not visit your feeders. They will stay in proximity to humans, building their nest in low trees or shrubs. Unlike most other bird species, the male and female mockingbird are difficult to tell apart.”
