One or more mockingbirds don't seem to know when I am trying to sleep - they keep singing almost all night long. I understand unmated males are the ones that sing at night. Probably good practice as female mockingbirds prefer males that know the most songs.

A friend of mine is letting me post some of his videos on the Birdzilla site. This month it is the Resplendant Quetzal - a fantastic bird.

Mockingbirds in urban settings have such an amazing array of calls - you gotta love the car alarm call at 3am.

I checked out the video and that bird is gorgeous!!! I had a mocking bird that sounded exactly like a cat in distress! I would go out at all times of night looking for the poor cat until I discovered it was a bird! They are so talented.
