I wonder if mockingbirds sing in the shower?
They are sometimes called "Nature's Greatest Mimic" and love to sing their hearts out. Extremely protective of their young, I have seen many a feline try to dodge the mockingbird's swoop and sometimes, people too!
Thanks to Elaine Stewart for sending this mockingbird photo. The bird, she says, "has been with us for several years. We recognize her from her broken wing, and she seems to manage very well."
