Banded Mockingbird


    We saw this Northern Mockingbird in Harrier Meadow on Thursday, and a little birdy told us this guy was wearing a band.


   Sure enough, we found a band on its right leg.

   Since the bird was spotted less than 200 yards away from where NJMC Naturalist Mike Newhouse banded 15 Northern Mockingbirds this past fall, we think this guy might be a local yokel.  Just a guess.
