Texas State Bird

The Common Mockingbird (a/k/a Northern Mockingbird) is the official state bird of Arkansas, Florida, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Texas.  It is a very popular state bird, more than likely because of its talent at mimicry!  It can mimic other bird songs, animal sounds, and mechanical sounds such as car alarms.  I've been told of one at Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boylston, MA that mimics the siren of an ambulance.
