Northern Mockingbird  - Time of day makes this a B & W image.

Northern Mockingbird - Time of day makes this a B & W image. (Mimus polyglottos)

"A medium-sized songbird, a bit more slender than a thrush and with a longer tail. Mockingbirds have small heads, a long, thin bill with a hint of a downward curve, and long legs. Their wings are short, rounded, and broad, making the tail seem particularly long in flight."
Originally found in the South, northern mockingbirds made a major range extension up both coasts toward Canada in the 1900s. Today they are found in the majority of the continental United States and in Canada and Mexico. Some of the northernmost populations may migrate south over winter.
