Mockingbird


Mimus polyglottos

The Mockingbird lives mostly in the southern regions of the US but can be found in some northern states and in Canada. It is called a mockingbird because it likes to copy other birds' songs.

The Mockingbird became Arkansas' official state bird on March 5, 1929. It was named state bird of Florida on April 23, 1907. Mississippi adopted it on February 23, 1944. Tennessee chose the Mockingbird as its state bird on April 22, 1933. And Texas decided on the Mockingbird on January 31, 1927.
