The Northern Mockingbird occupies somewhat the same niche as the American Robin, eating insects and fruits and nesting about human habitation. Both are bold, aggressive birds.
The Mockingbird has a loud song with repeated phrases which often include imitations of the songs of other birds:
Humber Bay West, which I visited this morning, is a good place to see them at any time of the year.
I’m sure you’ve seen this before but it is wonderful interactive guide for novices like me- just touch the bird and the name pops up and various bird song plays!

Fair Daffodils, we weep to see
You haste away so soon;
As yet the early-rising sun
Has not attain’d his noon.
Until the hasting day
But to the even-song;
And, having pray’d together, we
Will go with you along. – Robert Herrick (1591–1674)
