Feathered Friends Fact: shared the following about Mockingbirds:

A study released in October 2019 found that, in addition to mimicking the calls of other birds and manmade noises like music and machinery, Northern Mockingbirds have been known to imitate at least 12 different species of North American frogs and toads. In fact, John James Audubon was so in awe of this bird's singing ability, he wrote of the Northern Mockingbird in Birds of America, “There is probably no bird in the world that possesses all the musical qualifications of this king of song, who has derived all from Nature's self."

As a former choir nerd, I am in awe of the Mockingbird and it's musical ability. Talk about owning top notch listening skills that allows precise mimicking notes and tones.


Recreating nature.

Lots we can learn listening to the Mockingbird.

Take time for YOU, your Nest and our feathered friends.
