Mocking Bird

Mocking Bird (Mimuspolyglottus), an American thrush-like bird ranging from 40° N. to Mexico. The length is about ten inches, the plumage, brown above, white on the under-surface. It is much valued as a cage-bird, owing to its vocal powers, which, in imitative notes and natural song, are said to exceed those of any other species.
