To Kill a Mockingbird …..or just enjoy it.

I thought my daughter was exaggerating when she said a song bird was keeping her up at night. Last night I came for a visit and also was awakened by the everlasting serenade of a song bird. This morning we did some research and discovered that our nocturnal singer is the bachelor mockingbird trying to attract a female. The mockingbird mimics dozens to hundreds of other song birds as well as everyday noises like doorbells, frogs, insects, etc. He sings each song sequence six to twelve times ¬†and usually doesn’t repeat a sequence until he has sung every song he knows. Tonight I will pay more attention to this delightful songster, who needs sleep anyway.
