I was out front of our house here in 'The Heights' neighborhood of Little Rock. I thought I heard a Bobwhite but then said to myself, no way it must be a Northern Mockingbird or someone messing around one block over. I pulled out my phone and played the territorial call-the bird went silent. A few minutes later I heard the call again but this time it was just across the street. I looked and looked with no luck. So I played the contact call and a bird flew toward my backyard so I went there. I played the contact call again and he jumped up onto my back fence. I did get a picture and reported on e-bird. Strange, strange but so exciting-a new backyard bird.
