Northern Mockingbird (Mimus polyglottos) (1)
- Reported Jun 18, 2019 08:30 by Dave Trochlell

- Checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S57500365
- Comments: "This bird was perched high on the steep southeast-facing slope
in the dry gulch that is just west of the old homestead area and
Wigglesworth Spring. I was at least 100 meters from the bird, but could
easily see that it was a gray bird of thrasher size with a long tail. The
bird was entirely gray on the upperparts and very pale gray or whitish on
the underparts. Unfortunately, before I could attempt to get a distant
photo of the mockingbird a Rock Wren (see photo) flew right up to the bird
and loudly hazed it into flight. The mockingbird flew up the gulch and out
of my view.

What clinched the identification for me was seeing huge, prominent, white
wing-patches on the dark gray wings when the bird flushed. As far as I know
Northern Mockingbird is the only bird species with the combination of these
described features."
