The American Nightingale Part Two

The American Nightingale



From Misc


The American Nightingale

I am always fascinated and captivated by this bird. Not because it strikingly beautiful or a fierce bird of prey, but because of it's simple and complex, small but brave, and vocal but deceiving. Does this make any since? What do you think of the Mockingbird?

Thanks for stopping by,

Craig Glenn

Mockingbirds ROCK. We are at the norther end of their eastern territory. They don't seem to sing all night long line the ones out west. (ALL NIGHT LONG). We have a pair in our neighborhood and I make great neighbors.

Out west they seem to be a lot more territorial, taking on dogs, cats and people. Here they are more relaxed. Yup, I like my mocker neighbors.

Sad to say we have neither of them here. This photo I can see,what a great shot, are they hard to capture or relatively friendly?

When I am in mockingbird territory, I am in a new little piece of heaven! I love them. They make me laugh and I wish we had them here. They are slowly heading more northerly, and maybe someday! ~karen

Last year was the first time I saw a Mockingbird and I think they are beautiful.Unfortunately they do not seem to have come back to the area this year.:(

I love them, too, for their simple coloring, those white patches on the underside of their wings, and their song.

That would be a lifer for me. Hope to see one next spring in Florida.

I love them too and even though they won't stop their hundreds of bird calls I love to hear them. Your picture captured the puffed up meaty version. I have seen them look very sleek and trim too.

Although I do know the name of this bird, I have never seen or heard one as we do not have them here, so it is wonderful to be able to see a picture of one. I always imagined them to be a bigger bird though. Thanks for the great pic Craig.
