Northern Mockingbird

The northern mockingbirds Latin name is Mimus Polyglottos which means many-tongued mimic. It earned this name because it can mimic other bird calls. On the top it is gray and on the bottom it is white and it has white bars on its wings and a long black tail. Northern mockingbirds are very territorial and attack animals that come too close to their territory. Most northern mockingbirds don't migrate but some do. They live in North America and you can find them in towns, suburbs, backyards, and in parks. In the summer they mostly eat insects and in the winter they mostly eat fruit. Their status is least concern.
