2016-04-13 - Wednesday - Mockingbird

Wednesday night when I was leaving Clayworks at about 11:15 pm there was a mockingbird singing in the tree near my car. I was struck by the clarity and range of its song and realized it had been quite a while since I had heard one.

I pulled out my phone and captured about three minutes of the calls. I am always amazed at the wide range of variations in that song. It starts out sounding natural, then at times like an electronic noise, and then back to bird song. It was still going on with new, different sounds when I stopped, but I thought three minutes was enough.

If you've got three minutes to enjoy part of the free nature show that surrounds us, give a listen.
