One of the neighborhood mockingbirds is really going to town this morning. Not sure how many different songs he can sing bt he knows a bunch. Here are the birds that he has mimicked that I have been able to recognize.

Eastern Bluebird
Tufted Titmouse
Blue Jay
Eastern Phoebe
Carolina Wren
Northern Cardinal
Red-shouldered Hawk
European Starling (also a good mimic)
Killdeer

Female mockingbirds have a preference for males that can sing the largest number of different songs. Some males know up to 200 different songs.
