Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Mockingbird mocking
We went to Sampson State Park again today where we heard a mockingbird
singing a full repertoire of songs from apparently across the large
field judging by the quality of the sound and the volume. Except then I
saw the bird, only about 50' away - he was singing in a full but very
quiet voice, running through a couple of dozen songs with the same
dexterity that he will showing regularly in a few weeks, except somehow
dialing the volume way down while not changing the quality of the
sound. Perhaps warming up for the first day of spring tomorrow?

Cardinals, titmice, chickadees, robins & mourning doves also singing in
the warmth of the full sun, but they weren't holding back.
