Great shot Jim, it always amazes me how much detail you get out of the FZ35.

I have heard of mockingbirds but never knew what they looked like, thanks for this lovely photo Jim and for furthering my education.
I know I may sound a bit dumb, but is there a particular reason why they are called "mockingbirds" ?

Default Why they are called mockingbirds

One day we heard a bob white quail, but never could find him. Finally looked up and it turned out to be a mockingbird on a utility pole. They are excellent mimickers. And nothing sings like a mockingbird.

G'day all

Yes - the mockingbird is well referenced in the writings of many a poet & story teller
Also - the Aussie Lyrebird is world reknown for its mimicry ... mimics all the aussie song birds, to mobile phones, chain saws, and SLR cameras with their motor drive ... Kplunk-zip kplunk-zip etc
