A concatenation about birds: Mockingbird

All day and all night

Endless mimicry cheeping

Lives nearby and far

The Northern Mockingbird has a broad repertoire. It can mimic everything from other birds to inanimate objects. And it does so at all hours of the day and night. As poet Randall Jarrell put it: On the willow’s highest branch, monopolizing Day and night, cheeping, squeaking, soaring, The mockingbird is imitating life.

The states of Arkansas, Florida, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas proudly name the Northern Mockingbird as one of their state symbols.
