I hope this blog post finds you well and enjoying the change of season (without all the crazy rain we had during the early spring).
Although I don’t recall northern mockingbirds in this area when I was younger (maybe I didn’t pay that close attention), we now have many at our feeders.
Northern mockingbirds are plentiful when I have suet or whole peanuts offered, and they also are seen eating loose seed underneath the seed feeder. Evidently they like berries, too.
Fun fact: Northern mockingbirds can mimic up to 200 sounds in their environment including other birds, alarms, and gates creaking. Pretty clever!
