The Northern Mockinbird was named for its mimicking ability.
Northern Mockingbirds are found in North America; specifically in southeastern Canada, the United States, northern Mexico, the Bahamas, the Cayman Islands and the Greater Antilles. Rare vagrants have been reported in Europe. Within their range, they are permanent residents, except for some movements during harsh weather.
The feathers on the back range from grey to brown. Below the plumage is paler.
There are some white patches to the wings (mostly visible in flight).
They measure from 8.1 - 11 inches (20.5 - 28 cm) in length - including the tail. Males tend to be slightly larger in size.
