The mockingbird is a medium sized songbird, a bit more slender than a thrush and with a longer tail. Mockingbirds have small heads, a long thin bill with a hint of a downward curve and long legs. Their wings are short, rounded and broad, making the tail seem particularly long in flight.

Mockingbirds are overall gray-brown, paler on the breast and belly, with two white wing-bars on each wing. A white patch in each wing is often visible on perched birds, and in flight these become large white flashes. The white outer tail feathers are also flashy in flight.

The Northern mockingbird usually sits conspicuously on high vegetation, fences, eaves or telephone wires, or runs and hops along the ground. Found alone or in pairs throughout the year, mockingbirds aggressively chase off intruders on their territory.Mockingbirds copy the songs of other birds in the area and are known to sing over 200 unique songs. Look for Northern Mockingbirds throughout the United States and Southern Canadian towns, suburbs, backyards, parks, forest edges and open land at low elevations.

Both male and female Mockingbirds sing. They often mimic the sounds of birds and even frogs around them, including shrikes, blackbirds, orioles, killdeer, jays, hawks and many others. They go on learning new sounds throughout their lives. The song is a series of phrases, with each phrase repeated 2-6 times before shifting to a new sound; the songs can go on for 20 seconds of more. Many of the phrases are whistled, but mockingbirds also make sharp rasps, scolds, and trills. Un-mated males are the most insistent singers, carrying on all day and sometimes late into the night.
