I’m not an avid birdwatcher, but I do enjoy observing them on my daily morning walk. One bird I can always count on seeing is the Northern mockingbird (the state bird of Texas), identifiable by its long tail, distinct light grey color, and bold, fearless behavior (I’ve seen them chasing after hawks on multiple occasions!). While this little bird doesn’t have a unique song since it mimics other birds, it does have a singing pattern all its own, and I can always recognize the Northern mockingbird in Texas whenever I step outside.
