No Longer in a Cage!!!

No Longer in a Cage!!!

This is the Northern Mockingbird. Did you know that from the late 1700s to the early 1900s they were captured and sold as pets!

Now they are free and have begun to spread out again throughout all of the US. You can often see them running along the ground looking for insects.

The Northern Mockingbird has 250 to 350 songs in its repertoire! Sometimes it seems like they can go on for hours…

Make sure to watch out going near one of their nests, they are very bold when defending their nests and will attack cats and even humans if you get too close!!!

Remember to stay healthy and stay safe.
