About Us (and the Mockingbird)
What’s in the name? Mimus polyglottos, or the “many-tongued mimic”, is the Latin name for the Northern Mockingbird. A singer of many songs, I even heard him mimic the opening bars to Hindemith’s Symphony in B Flat for Concert Band (the first four notes, at least). They are omnivores, and the male attempts to perform all kinds of birdsong, late into the evening. The state bird of five states, where the Mockingbird resides year round, they are fearless protectors of their territory.
