Northern Mockingbird

Northern Mockingbird

 

The Northern Mockingbird is commonly called the “American Nightingale.” This songbird lives up to its nickname, singing during the day and sometimes at night, varying its songs from spring to fall.

 

After the young hatch, the father and mother both share the feeding duties. The father then teaches the little ones how to fly while the mother is busy preparing a new nest for her next brood of babies!

Food Preferences of the Northern Mockingbird

 

This “American Nightingale” dines on fruits and insects but also enjoys seed at feeders, thereby making suburban and farmland areas ideal habitats for this species of bird.

 

Wild Bird Library - Northern Mockingbird - Food

The Northern Mockingbird is a natural predator of beetles, grasshoppers, and ants, making it a natural pest control, although it will eat the seeds, fruits, and vegetables in gardens and farmers' fields. Once in a while it will eat earthworms and even tiny lizards!
