[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Northern Mockingbird (Mimus polyglottos) is the only mockingbird commonly found in North America. This bird is mainly a permanent resident, but northern birds may move south during harsh weather. This species has rarely been observed in Europe. This species was first described by Linnaeus in his Systema Naturę in 1758 as Turdus polyglottos. The Northern Mockingbird is renowned for its mimicking ability, as reflected by the meaning of its scientific name, 'many-tongued mimic.' The Northern Mockingbird has gray to brown upper feathers and a paler belly. Its wings have white patches which are visible in flight. Males and females look alike, though only males sing (Wikipedia)

Hello Michael
the mockingbird is really difficult here. But the way its is seen give a wonderful feeling of wilderness. The sharp details of the eyes and the plumage is lovely.
Nice natural presentation.

hello Michael,
A natural and fine picture of this special bird we don't see often on TN. You have very well taken its vivid eye. Interesting note too, only males sing, how special!:-)
