ABSTRACT
Mockingbird, a bird related to the catbird and thrasher. Its natural song is a series of clear, varied notes, usually repeated several times, but it is named for its ability to imitate the songs of other birds, and even the mewing of cats. The mockingbird often sings at night. There are about 15 species of mockingbirds, most of which are found in tropical climates. The northern mockingbird is found from Nova Scotia south to Florida, in parts of the Midwest, and from Wyoming south to Mexico and the West Indies. Because of its distinct ranges, it is sometimes classified as two subspecies. The northern mockingbird is the state bird of Arkansas, Florida, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Texas.
